It can take up to one month to make a single huipil, not including the time spent boiling the dyes, hand cleaning and spinning yarn and embroidering. This lengthy process is why these pieces are limited, rare and one of a kind. Many dye plants are seasonal and can only be found during certain months. No two are the same making each huipil completely original.
This sustainable and responsible process is created by a circle of indigenous women who are paid fair wages and are able to support their families while passing down their cultural traditions to the following generation.
