About our Vintage Corte Bandanas
Made from repurposed 1OAK Corte woven fabric (Cortes are the skirts Maya women wear). Cortes are made with a footloom and each is about -4.5 yards long. Each design is typical of their region, each yard takes 5-6 hours to weave.
After their Cortes have been used, sometimes for 4-5 years, and they have weaved a new one, Maya women sell their Corte at the local artisan markets to be purchased and repurposed into tablecloths, curtains, or put to any other good used. Each corte is loomed using cotton thread that has been prepared with intricate Ikat designs using century old techniques that cannot be duplicated by machines.
