Clouds of Cobán in Grey + Mustard

Update July 2020: Only one blouse left!

 

Two blouses available in the grey + mustard version in a Medium size.

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.

Pictures in our indigo + indigo version show how the delicate weave flows when worn.
