The Handmade Textiles of Veronica Genta
I stumbled across this female weaver at the organic market in San Miguel. I fell in love with the simplicity of the weave and her modern design for the traditional wrap.
Veronica makes her designs with lightweight cotton yarns as well as heavy wools. I was drawn to these cotton wraps because I live in the southeast and will get much more wear out of them. They can be worn in several different ways. Her business partner was there at the market with her, he speaks English and she does not, and he showed me all of the different ways you can wear these wraps.
Above, the wrap is worn back to front with the tassel at the neckline. It is available for purchase on my website.
Grey and white with a touch of green, the wrap is shown here worn in a typical way with one side thrown over the shoulder. This one is also available on my website.
