A beautiful new handwoven cotton blouse made with two panels, which makes for a slim fit. These panels were woven on a backstrap loom by our partner weavers up in Cobán. This is a unique piece not only because it only uses two panels (traditionally, blouses are wider with three panels), but also because of the stylish fringing, which is unusual. The little slit along the neckline makes for a relaxed feel. The peach color is gentle and yet the picbil patterns in the weave are visible without overwhelming. Figures include a line of men and women holding hands, ducklings, and stars. This is a beautiful piece 100% handwoven, and the panels have been embroidered together by hand also.
This type of huipil (traditional blouse) is regionally worn with gathered flowy corte (wrap skirt), and the combination is really beautiful. But feel free to combine with other kinds of skirts or jeans.
