Tzotz Bed Runner
The Tztoz bed runner is inspired by the clothing of the Chamula community in the highlands of Chiapas. Tzotz means wool in the Tzotzil language. The Chamulas weave wool panels that they obtain from their sheep and turn them into shawls and ponchos that protect them from the cold and humid climate of the region.
The wool is spun, woven, felted, and vigorously brushed in a painstaking process that makes them highly valued (and virtually indestructible). Chamula knit products are produced by the same pair of hands from start to finish. As a result of these traditional production methods, each piece of clothing is deeply personal.
Care: Dry Clean Only
*All items sold by Vía Raíz are handmade. Therefore they may have small "imperfections" or slight variations of color and design between each product—we think that is part of the beauty of having something made with care by individual artisans.
