Vintage 39: Corte Sumpango
Our friend and embroidery coordinator Claribel sourced this corte in her hometown. As she is known in her community to support the beautiful embroidery traditions of her community, makers often come to offer her garments when they are looking to sell. And she knew we'd love this piece! Gracias, Clari.
We especially love the color contrast. Something about that classic indigo blue with the soft pink, magenta, and other cheerful hues scattered in the randa embroidery... It is so joyful!
This piece has been cut so it is not in loop form. The ends have been sewn by machine, we think this would be an excellent piece for upholstery because of the weight-clean selvages at the sides of the corte.
