Woven Yoke on Natural 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 natural neutrally colored 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. This is a medium-large size blouse but is 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.
