More about this special process:

The artisans of the Maya Highlands practice an intricate ikat dyeing technique called jaspe. It involves tying hundreds of tiny strings in knots around a thread bundle, then submerging the bundle in a dye. When the strings are removed, a vibrant pattern is left where the dye could not penetrate.

The threads are then handwoven on a backstrap loom to create unique patterns.

It took over 3 weeks to make this unique piece of fabric.
