Fabulous oversized pompoms from Tenejapa, Chiapas. These are called borlas and of this size and quality they are quite rare. We adore them as decorative pieces but they are created as adornment to the vibrant and wonderful tarditional men's attire. They hang down from their hats. See last picture of an example of the traditional men's attire from this town
These represent hours of work and contain a lot of yarn!
This is a wonderful ceremonial Churrancho huipil. This one was hand woven on a backstrap loom in two well matched cotton base panels that are joined by hand embroidered decorative seams. The surface decoration is supplementary brocade featuring various zoomorphic motifs. Circa 1980.
This is a ceremonial huipil with a wonderful feel and drape.
This huipil is in excellent condition apart from the a couple of light yellow spots. I have not tried to remove these.
38 in wide x 29 in length
These are great year round. In the winter I wear them over a light sweater and they are cozy.
