Red and Pink Woven Yoke on Cotton 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 white cotton. 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 cotton is soft. This is a medium size and is meant to be somewhat loose. Yes, it will need ironing but it's so worth it. Truly beautiful.
“Your blouses put the Sundance Catalog blouses to shame. Yours are handmade, prettier and less expensive!”
