Brown and white wool kutsiuri - Photograph ©Yvonne Negrín 2018

This shoulder bag, kutsiuri in Wixárika, was made from natural brown and white virgin hand spun wool. It was woven on the traditional back strap loom and is a fine example of the traditional weaving done by the Wixárika people. The motifs include deer, the water gourd, and flowers. The front and back sides of this kutsiuri are distinctly different as can be seen in the photographs.
