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.
I love the cut and the overall look. Very stylish
Chest width 21 x length 26 inches. A size medium. These are intended to fit snug around the shoulders.
Excellent condition. These are very hard to come by!
Wonderful shawl from Chamula, Chiapas. This garment is handwoven from the little sheep that are raised in small flocks there, spun on small top style spindles and then hand embroidered. In addition to looking great it is warm and super practical. We love a poncho.
The wool that goes to make this shawls is raised locally and spun on small top style spindles. This was purchased from the woman that made it.
