This colorful blanket pattern evokes the artistic traditions of Mexico's Tehuantepec area. Indigenous women of the region were known for their distinctive Tehuana style - ethnic skirts, flowery headpieces and silver jewelry. Fanciful dresses were elaborately hand-embroidered according to Zapotec Indian traditions. Tehuana style was favored and adopted in the 1930s by acclaimed surrealist artist Frida Kahlo. The Coyoacan blanket is named for the neighborhood in which Kahlo was born, lived and produced her most famous works. Coyoacan is one of the oldest boroughs in Mexico City and in Kahlo's day was a center of counterculture activity. Today this tranquil residential area with parks, squares and cobblestone streets remains a favorite of both bohemians and tourists. Unnapped, sueded trim. 82% wool/18% cotton. Dry clean. Made in the USA.
