Announcing: The Colors of Guatemala Trip Jan 2024

Blusa 97

//A new Artisan Direct listing from our partners in Cobán!//

A stunning blouse made with three panels of pure picbil joined at the middle with gentle hand-stitching called "duck's feet." This whole piece is full of star figures - can you spot them?

The white threads interact beautifully and play with natural light in such a flattering manner. Picbil is a regional weave only found around Cobán, and only the most skilled backstrap weavers are able to perform this delicate weave. All four selvages are finished on the loom, showing masterful weaving.

This type of huipil (traditional blouse) is regionally worn with a gathered flowy corte (wrap skirt), and the combination is really beautiful. But feel free to combine it with other kinds of skirts or jeans. 

We think this blouse fits approximately like US size S/M and is made of all cotton threads.

This beauty was handwoven by Leona and Carmelina.
