Rare and beautiful hand woven Mexican serape in an unusual cream or bone color with a beautiful multi color center diamond design known as the "Ojo de Dios" (The Eye of God).
The subtle coloration and fineness of this particular weaving make it almost impossible to duplicate its beauty in a photograph.
These Zarapes, or blankets, were made in different parts of Mexico, the city of Saltillo in the state of Coahuila being the most famous . Because of this they are known as "Saltillos".
AS WITH ALL ANTIQUE WOOL TEXTILES, OLD SARAPES ARE NEVER "PERFECT". YOU CAN ALWAYS EXPECT MINOR MOTH DAMAGE OR FADING OR FRINGE WEAR OR BLEEDING OR AREAS OF THINNING OR SOMETHING. WE ALWAYS TRY TO DESCRIBE ANY MAJOR DAMAGE.
