Clouds of Cobán in Mahogany + Pericón (S)

Handwoven using naturally-dyed cotton, this breezy huipil is a delicate balance between tradition and comfort, with a brick red base and picbil figures in grey and mustard. These Clouds of Cobán are dear to us because of the two groups of women involved in the making process - the natural dyers at Lake Atitlán who prepare the cotton, and the picbil weavers near Cobán who work on the delicate textile patterns, panel by panel on a traditional backstrap loom. 

This is a blouse to be treasured, as it takes about a month for one weaver to complete the three panels and embroider them stitch by stitch to make one huipil.

The blouse is traditionally loose-fitting, and we recommend this piece for tops size S and M.
