This hand woven, luxurious 'Huipil' are created in San Juan Colorado, Oaxaca. Each style is hand crafted with natural dyes and woven into 100% cotton cloth using the ancient weaving technique of a backstop loom. This two tone striped caftan is lush and elegant with it's deep purple coloring, contrasted with bright white diamond embroidery. Perfect for layering and dressing up with heels or thrown over a bathing suit with sandals.
It can take up to one month to make a single dress, not including the time spent boiling the dyes, hand cleaning and spinning yarn and embroidering. This lengthy process is why the caftans 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.
