This hand-embroidered dress from Mexico is as chic as it is comfortable! A light muslin/ cotton fabric is embroidered in a traditional Mayan pattern. Perfect from day to evening!

 

 

Mexican textiles reflect a passion for color, pattern, and design. Using centuries-old techniques, traditional artisans still use vegetables, fruits, and barks to make natural dyes. Women weave into their clothing intricate patterns with meaning dating back to Mayan times. And families pass the traditions of weaving from generation to generation.

Your purchase helps to preserve a centuries-old textile tradition and creates sustainable income for artisans and their communities. Thank you!!
