Fiesta


My mother was a weaver, and I lament the fact that I never learned! I'm sure that my love of textiles stems from her artistry.  These chenille shawls are awesome, and I'm determined to buy one. The fiesta pink is particularly winsome!! But, then  again, I love the beige and brown tones. The weaver of these shawls displays them in several cities.  I found those pictured above in Chimayo and saw a few others in Bernilillo.  Can't seem to be able to decide on the colour...another one in primarlily in a delicious shade of cilantro was particularly handsome.


The scarves in the bottom photo are equally as beautiful as the shawls.

  1. Don't choose, just by them all! The ones you are not wearing you can always give to charities.

  3. They are lovely. I'd select a bright cheery one, like Fiesta Pink and a more subtle one to go with a greater range of colours. I love the feel of chenille.

  5. Such beautiful handicrafts,
    almost hurts seeing them stretched out
    on the clothes hangers.
