This Santiago el Pinar sheath bears stripes typical of this Tzotzil group, who have developed their own asymmetrical stripe designs to come up with an innovation of the tradition of backstrap loom weaving. This cushion is made and finished by the expert hands of the weavers of the Choy Spolavil group, artisans from the highlands of Chiapas.
