The Milpa Cover has two versions; one woven on a backstrap loom with brocade and another embroidered in linen fabric. Both pieces are sewn by hand and made by artisans from the Snaul Ko'oton group, in the municipality of Chenalhó in the highlands of Chiapas.
The brocade or embroidery of the Funda Milpa was a creation of the artisans and an interpretation of their vision of the elements through a process of collective creation.
Care: Wash with neutral soap by hand, or machine wash on a delicate cycle. Dry on the shadow.
