A beautiful new handwoven cotton blouse with green accents. This style of using a different-colored panel in the middle is characteristic of the nearby town Tamahú, among a few others.
Each of the three panels has been woven on a backstrap loom row by row. We love the contrast between the rich green and gentle white. The hand-embroider added to the blouse brings the piece together nicely.
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.
Note that all handwoven panels have four clean selvedge ends, a technically challenging feat that is laborious. The end results in structurally strong textiles that reduces waste as all panels are used to their fullest.
This blouse fits like US size M.
This blouse was handwoven by Margarita.
