Made on a back-strap loom with naturally dyed, 100% organic cotton, these traditional 'Huipiles de Telar' are created in remote mountainous areas outside Oaxaca.
Slightly shorter than the caftan style, these dresses are made with a heavier gram of cotton making them soft and supple to the touch, while creating a shimmering look to the garment due to the double weave technique used with patterns woven within, resembling diamond shapes, florals or birds. It's oversized shape allows for a casual and easy fit, which can be belted for a more contemporary look.
Each of these pieces express the artistic heritage of the people who create and preserve these important traditions for generations to come. Place cursor over photo for close up to view details.
