Red Lion Table Runner
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 Sololá region of Guatemala, one of the few majority indigenous regions in Guatemala. This piece features a lion design set on a beige background and is made from 100% natural cotton. The lion is often woven by young women to demonstrate a desire to be courted. As the king of the jungle, the lion symbol is a keeper of goods, wealth, and good luck. Sometimes the lion is read as a representation of anger, and is therefore never used in huipils that are worn during happy events.
