Camino Cinco de Mayo
Our table runners are hand embroidered on 100% cream linen. The table runners are embroidered with floral designs and leaves and finished with a zig-zag border around the periphery.
Measurement: 16” wide and 59” long.
These table runners were created by artisans in Aguacatenango, which is a small community in Chiapas. Aguacatenango is particularly known for its floral embroidery, which adorn their traditional blouses. The community itself is agricultural, as men spend three-quarters of the year away from the village to harvest maize. Corn, therefore, has significant symbolic meaning for the community, as the livelihoods of the people depend on it. The women supplement family income by producing garments and homeware with traditional floral motifs that mirror the flora and fauna of the region.
Due to the intricate embroidery work, we recommend hand wash in cold water or dry clean only.
