Blue Woven Yoke on Linen Mexican Blouse, Chiapas
Exceptional handwork on these Mexican blouses handmade in Bochil, Chiapas. This short-sleeved blouse is constructed in the traditional square, unfitted way of huipiles from a gorgeous light blue linen. It is then bordado or embroidered on a back strap loom in the traditional Mayan iconography depicting the universe in a way only very skilled Mayan women can do. The linen is a soft linen, cool in summer. These are medium size blouses but are meant to be somewhat loose. They look stunning with with straight-leg or skinny jeans! Yes, it will need ironing but it's so worth it. Truly beautiful.
“Your blouses put the Sundance Catalog blouses to shame. These are handmade, prettier and less expensive!”
