Labrada Cotton Napkin

Sale price$18.00

Our pedal loom Labrada Napkin is a subtly patterned oversize napkin suitable for everyday use. The pattern is subtly white on white raised herringbone design very much like a Jacquard, but in a pedal loom.

19 3/4" W x 19 3/4" L

Machine Wash Separately. Do not use bleach.
Please note: napkin will shrink 5-10% after first wash.

Made in Oaxaca
The pedal loom was a Colonial introduction that was adopted throughout Mexico as an alternative to the backstrap loom, the standard cloth making technique in the pre-hispanic world. The looms are wooden, and usually made by the weavers themselves, and allow for wider cloths to be woven than their backstrap counterparts. A very skill based and demanding craft, that creates amazing patterns in cotton, wool, silk and a endless amount of other fibres. Just magic.
