    Trying to date this Mexican Serape. Looks to be very old. Fringe is in bad shape, but rest of item looks great. Very vivid colors. Any help would be appreciated!! It measures 78" X 38.5". It is very thin. Anyone? Thanks in advance!!

      By the way, I am commenting here becuase I love this textile but also because I am wondering if anyone responds with comments on this site? It has been 2 years since you published this amazing piece and nobody has commented. Is this site dead? Thank you and good luck with your beautiful textile.

      Looks Mexican to me too yet I have never seen one with the smaller details like this one has. Colors yes, Details, no. It's really nice!

      it's a beauty! probably from the 1950s, by the colors and size of the stripes. 40s had wider bands.
