Cotton chaleco shawl, 'Night of Sophistication' (Mexico)

Combining hues of navy and onyx, Mexican artisan Ignacia Perez creates a chaleco shawl full of elegance. Working on the traditional backstrap loom, she hand-weaves the fabulous shawl from cotton. She incorporates beige threads to create borders and pinstripes. A tie closure secures this accessory across the chest.
