Dress 7

A one of a kind beauty created by local collective Mujeres de Maíz from Santiago Atitlán using a beautiful medium weight traditional corte (wrap skirt) as a base, and adding hand embroidery stitch by stitch. This town is known traditionally for the beautiful and laborious bird embroidery featured in women's huipiles (blouses) and men's pants.

This dress features a precious warbler-like friend on the front.

Fits like US size S - M and the included sash allows for optional highlighting of waistline. The corte used in this piece is all cotton, and the embroidery thread used is a glossy blend.

Chest: 40 inches
