Satin handcrafted "un" traditional blouse from the Tzotzil Mayan village of San Juan Chamula. I'm told these take a month to make. They require a great deal of skill because of the fineness of the detail. In fact, these are seldom made anymore as the current style in features machine embroidery.
A lovely purply burgundy base with acid green slightly metallic embroidery. Some fabulous choices were made by the artisan with this one! I love the cut and the overall look. Very stylish
Chest width 18 x length 25 inches. A size small maybe a small-medium. These are intended to fit snug around the shoulders.
Excellent condition. These are very hard to come by!
This is huipil made from an older pre 1980s Chichicastenango huipil and natural silk velvet. Absolutely phenomenal color way! The huipil is a now rare wool embroidered piece. These are no longer produced in this region.
W 27.5 x L 37 inches
The cost of the dress is just enough to cover the materials, the labor that went into it and the fees to sell it.
This poncho come from the Highlands of Chiapas, a village called San Andres Larrainzar. Not a traditional garment but a completely fabulous modern design using the traditional San Andres Larrainzar style of weaving. Wonderful color way.
