Satin handcrafted "un" traditional blouse from the Tzotzil Mayan village of San Juan Chamula. This one is special in that it is a hybrid. It is a Chamula un with Zinacantan style embroidery! Chamula and Zinacantan are neighboring villages but with a very different aesthetic. This is hand embroidered, these are becoming increasingly rare as the current style features machine embroidery.
I love the cut and the overall look. Chest width 20 x length 25 inches. A size medium. These are intended to fit snugly around the shoulders.
This is a gorgeous handwoven huipil from the Costa Chica of Oaxaca. The huipil is woven of hand spun cotton and the weave is a of traditional design. The the brown is the natural color of the coyuchi cotton. Huipiles from this region are difficult to come by and this is a fabulous example.
This was purchased from the artisan at asking price.
This one has these measurements: Chest 28" Length 31"

Wonderful hand-embroidered dress from the Balochi people of Afghanistan. The cut is perfect and the embroidery is fabulous. The ultimate boho dress!
41" long and 17" wide across the chest under the armpits. The material is a nice quality chiffon.
Most of these dresses come well loved. It is not uncommon for them to have small burn holes from cooking fire embers or loose embroidery threads. Please expect that. It is part of what makes them wonderful and the price is adjusted to account for overall condition.
