A stunning picbil-filled blouse made with two panels joined at the middle with gentle hand-stitching called "duck feet." Fitting as the picbil figures themselves include little ducks - 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 the delicate weave. The use of two panels for this blouses makes for a slim fit. All four selvedges are finished on the loom, showing masterful weaving.
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.
Please note that the modeled images are of a different blouse with similar measurements (the picbil figures are different).
This blouse fits like US sizes S and M.
