Announcing: The Colors of Guatemala Trip Jan 2024

Blusa 70

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

We love the contrasting colors of this gem! A beautiful new handwoven cotton blouse made by combining two panels woven on a backstrap loom by our partner weavers up in Cobán. The gentle cotton weave base is called "calado." It is embellished with floral embroidery full of French knots on the neckline and sleeves.

Note that both the handwoven panels have all four clean selvage ends, a technically challenging feat that is laborious. The end results in structurally strong textiles that reduce waste as all panels are used to their fullest extent.

This blouse fits loosely like US size M.

This blouse was handwoven by Blanca. 



Width:  26 inches

Length: 27 inches


Material: Cotton

Care: Please wash by hand inside out and line-dry or lay flat to dry.
