Ecuador Ikat Shawl with Lace

Vintage indigo ikat rebozo with macrame. From the Azuay Valley, a (territorial subdivision) in the south-central region of Azuay Province, Ecuador, South America.

Shawls from this area are of cotton yarn, warp-resist indigo dyed, with knotted macrame fringe. They typically have a 60-90 centimeter (two to three foot) undyed fringe at each end with designs made by tying the warp together in overhand knots. A few shawls have fringe made in crochet, or a square mesh knotted net(single element, filet) with embroidered motifs. Motifs include flowers, birds, the seal of Ecuador, dates, boats, and sometimes the weaver’s name.
