Plum Table Runner
This beautiful plum and blue table runner is perfect for brightening up a room, adding beautiful Guatemalan flair to any room.
Each table runner is woven on the footloom by our Trama Textiles cooperative of Mayan weavers in the Guatemalan Highlands. Each is a unique piece, you cannot get the same one twice. Foot Loom weaving is a different weaving technique than backstrap loom weaving, it requires a different method including the feet in the weaving process. The footloom allows the weavers to create more intricate and detailed patterns, sewing deep symbolism into every stitch of this bed runner.
This design comes from the Sacatepéquez region. The central pattern features zigzags, serpents, and flowers. In Mayan symbolism, the serpent represents the god Gucumatz, the creator of the world. The zigzags can also signify mountains, which provide clean air and protection from sickness. The images of the flowers that grow abundantly all year in Guatemala symbolize life and fertility. Quite a meaningful piece!
