Pantalón – San Lucas Tolimán

Historical pants made with two panels woven in waist loom with cotton thread. The two panels from which the pants are made are machine sewed together to form the legs sleeves. Along the length of the panel known as the warp, there is a pattern of red stripes of different sizes. With additional webbed yarns brocades are woven in distinctive shapes of this community. These geometric plants, vegetables and flower motifs are made with cotton, wool, and acrylic fibers. This style of pants is worn at knee height which is adjusted from the waist, folding the excess fabric to the inside to shorten depending on the height of the wearer. To make the pieces that form the crotch, triangles are cut in one of the panels. Because of that, there is a gap on one side of the waist.
