Chile Verde Throw
Introducing our softest-cotton, season-round comfort throw that keeps you warm in the winters, cool in the summers, and your home - elegant year-round. A modern take on traditional San Martin Chile Verde weavings, the blanket is handwoven on a foot loom, creating an intricate, Mayan-inspired brocade.
Handwoven on a treadle loom, the fabric takes about a month to weave.
This delicate yet impactful embroidery, as our other Chile Verde pieces, is inspired by one of the traditional geometric weaving styles native to the region of San Martin Sacatepequez. (It is popularly known as San Martin Chile Verde, named so after the abundance of green chile peppers grown there).
Handcrafted using a falseria ('false brocade') style of weaving, the textile is brought to life with a combination of foot pedaling and weaving by hand on a treadle loom.
To create this multi-dimensional design, master weavers Don Marcello and his son Mario, meticulously manipulate dozens of shafts of the loom, one at a time, creating just the right weave and pattern. The process is truly mesmerizing and complex, to say the least, with each meter of fabric taking anywhere from one to three days to weave. When ready, the fabric is cut and sewn by Eulalia, seamstress extraordinaire, who constructs the final pieces in Ciudad Vieja.

Because these items are made with vintage textiles and may include leather accenting or hardware, we recommend that they are professionally dry cleaned when cleaning is required.
JASPE & JASPE BASURA
We recommend that cushions, rugs, throws and bed blankets from these collections are dry cleaned. This will ensure that colors retain their luster and fabric its shape.
TOTO & CHILE VERDE
Gently wash cushions, bed blankets and throws from these collections by hand, in cool water. Wrap the tassels in rubber bands before washing, use mild soap and line dry to maintain the piece's original shape.
Due to its smooth, non-porous surface made of glass, enamel is bacteria inhibiting and easy to clean. Clean with lime juice and baking soda using the smooth side of the cleaning sponge or a soft brush.
We recommend hand-washing these fabrics with mild soap. For tie & dye pieces, please wash them at 30°C and striped pieces at 40°C and lay flat to dry. Dry cleaning is recommended for kapok-filled cushion inserts.
Clean with a natural or mild cleanser (avoid harsh chemicals) and a soft cloth.
Vacuum regularly. Rotate every few months to even out wear, especially if the rug is located in a high traffic area. In case of a liquid spill, blot the spot using a white cloth to draw up the liquid; never rub a wet stain to prevent colors from bleeding. If further spot cleaning is required, entrust your rug to a professional dry cleaning service.
While in storage, do not place objects on top of the artwork. Keep handling to a minimum when during the hanging process and hold your print only from the sides. Fine art papers can scratch easily, so be very careful to avoid scraping anything across the surface of the print.
For cleaning we recommend using a clean, white, dry, soft lint-free cloth to gently wipe off dust and/or dirt. Use a white non-colored cloth will allow you to see when dust has been collected.
It is recommended that you never display giclee prints in direct sunlight and avoid high temperatures and humidity as it can cause yellowing.
