These vintage, medium-weight cotton cortes were woven on backstrap looms, run four to five yards in length, and measure 34-42 inches in width. Depending on the wearer, cortes are often widened with the addition of a panel of matching fabric.
The double ikat (resist dye) weaving technique seen in this vintage collection requires a high level of collaboration and skill--and is increasingly rare to find. These cortes are sold as a complete (original) garment.
These tightly woven and resilient cotton fabrics are suitable for many uses.
