Corte top 3
This top is one of five that we asked our embroidery partners in Sumpango to embellish with flowers around the neckline and one on the back. The blouses were sewn by Juan Carlos, and he already had these in existence when COVID hit Guatemala. These tops were born out of our efforts to quickly provide projects for our artisan partners.
This piece features striking corte with mostly blues and some greens and browns in the ikat, which are vibrant in both warp and weft. These colors contrast nicely with the soft pink used for the flowers. The cotton used for the embroidery is all naturally-dyed.
While the sizing says Medium, it fits more like a Small/Medium in US standards.
Width: 19 inches
Length: 23 inches
