Folk Rug/Blanket - Need Help With ID
August 28, 2014 4:44 AM   Subscribe

This is a rug/blanket that's been hand-woven -

I need some help identifying it. It's pretty large - over 6 feet by 3 roughly. Any help much appreciated.

Hmm, not a great photo. Looks Guatemalan maybe? - this is based on what looks like 2 quetzal birds in the center. See here for quetzal bird motif. Quetzals are a symbol of Guatemala.

Here is a similar one on ebay, though it is not well identified.

Awesome! Thank you so much. Do you have any idea what the middle thing is between the birds? Been trying to figure that out as well.

Oh, here you go. Here is a blue one identified as Momostenango (which is in Guatemala). Momostenango blankets are a thing.
