Clouds of Cobán

--Currently only one left, in Teal/Indigo!--

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.
