This blanket is woven on a waist loom in Aldama, by the expert hands of the weavers of the Malalena group. This group has constantly innovated their craft without losing the tradition of their techniques. This blanket has cotton in its warp for a soft touch and wool weft from the highlands of Chiapas for warmth and comfort. The Aldama Blanket is available in two colors and was made under concepts of collective creation between the artisans of the Choy Spolavil group and NGO Impacto.
