A traditional brightly colored Mexican Serape Blanket this is an older version with higher quality weaving and brighter colored yarns from the 1970's or 1960's. These are sold to tourists traveling in Mexico. They are also popular in the Southwestern United States to recover the seats in your old vintage pickup truck. Artsits and people with a sense of design use them to cover their couches in the Southwestern bungalow and barrio homes. I have even seen them used as curtains, wall hangings rugs, bed spreads. These are a design icon of Mexican culture and heritage and also a symbol of Chicano life in America. This type of Mexican serape weaving goes back more than 100 years and the older they are the more expensive they get.
