Cochineal Dyed Oaxaca Runner – Mexico

Winning Bid: $85.00

Item condition: New

Description

This gorgeous striped runner is definitely for purple lovers. Simplicity at its best. The donor purchased it in Oaxaca about 20 years ago and believes it was woven by a Mixtec weaver from Huazolotitla. The luscious purple cotton was dyed with dyes extracted from mollusk shells and combined with cotton dyed with indigo and cochinilla. It is half of a pozahuancos, a traditional wrap worn by Mixtec women along the coast. There are very few of the purple shell dyers remaining in the area so this is a very special piece for not only cohineal dye¬† lovers but indigo too! It measures 14″ wide X 72″ long.
