Wonderful Nahua blouse from Puebla. Absolutely wonderful teeny tiny pleats are fixed together with decorative embroidery. A technique called pepenado. These are not easy to find in my experience. The length is 23" and width is 23" under the armpits across the chest inches. Fits up to a size medium.

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.
