These are exceptionally beautiful blouses that I've purchased on past visits to the Holy Week Artisan Market. On my most recent visit to the Uruapan Artisan Market during Semana Santa, I stumbled across a Women's Cooperative of 8 women from San Felipe de los Herreros. I bought these blouses from them.
The white cotton is a medium weight and the blouse is pieced together, all hand sewn but the even more amazing part is the "deshilado" or the "dethreading" of the yoke, shoulders and arms. The threads are literally picked out to form the design...flowers, stars, abstract, vines. The longer sleeved versions are all about 3/4 length sleeves. And the design is continued on the sleeves. The edges of the cuffs are scalloped on the two with scalloped necklines
This is a beautiful blouse that can be tucked in or left out. It's a timeless work of art that will be handed down to daughters in the future. I'll be wearing mine a lot this summer...
