Coyote Cave Fabric
This cloth fragment, woven from agave plant fibers, was found in Coyote Cave, an archaeological site in northern Mexico's state of Coahuila. The American Indians who lived here never adopted cotton or the techniques and tools used by their neighbors in cotton weaving. Yet they created spectacular and varied textiles—from cloths to belts to blankets—using wild plant fibers and non-loom techniques.
