Clouds of Cobán
Handwoven using naturally-dyed cotton, this breezy huipil is a delicate balance between tradition and comfort, in joyous hues. 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.
Two sizes available, Pequeño and Grande. The blouse is traditionally loose-fitting, so sizing is pretty flexible. Limited quantity available in naturally-dyed hues.
