Oxchuc Multi-colored Woven Cotton Mexican Huipil, Chiapas


$ 110.00

These are colorful and beautiful woven and embroidered Mexican huipiles handmade in Oxchuc, Chiapas by the women of Sna Jolibil women's weaving cooperative. This short-sleeved blouse is constructed in the traditional square, unfitted way of huipiles from a gorgeous heavier white cotton. It is then bordado or embroidered on a back strap loom in the traditional Oxchuc design in a way only very skilled Mayan women can do.  These are medium size and are meant to be somewhat loose. Truly beautiful. Wash inside out in cold water, air dry and then light pressing. Colorful design on bright white and red striped background.
