This hand woven, luxurious 'Huipil' or dress is 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 teal blue and white striped dress is accented in multi-colored embroidered floral motifs, with scalloped red piping at the neckline, sleeve and hem, this one of a kind dress brightens any wardrobe.
It can take up to one month to make a single piece, not including the time spent boiling the dyes, hand cleaning and spinning yarn and embroidering. This lengthy process is why these dresses 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.
