Clouds of Cobán in Pericón + Logwood (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 local plants pericón and logwood. 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.
