Clouds of Cobán in Mint + Cochineal (L)

//This is a one-of-a-kind handwoven addition.//

Handwoven using naturally-dyed cotton, this breezy huipil is a delicate balance between tradition and comfort, in soft hues obtained from a local variety of basil and cochineal. 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 10-12 weeks for one weaver to complete the three panels and embroider them stitch by stitch to make one huipil.

The blouse is traditionally loose-fitting, and we think this piece fits like US size L, worn loosely.
