Zig Zag Table Runner - Blue or Green
These table runners will make a beautiful addition to your home decor. Each table runner is woven on the backstrap loom by our Trama Textiles cooperative of Mayan weavers in the Guatemalan Highlands. Traditionally made, these table runners convey culture and quality and will make a fantastic centerpiece for your dining room table. Each is a unique piece, you cannot get the same one twice.
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!
