"Soledad" Blouse from Mexico, Embroidered Linen in Orange

Pedro

The traditional designs in our "Soledad" Mexican blouses date back to the year 600 and have been used in ceremonial dress since the Classical Maya period. This blouse is particularly exquisite because of the amount of embroidery and the attention to detail. It is truly a work of art!

The artisans who weave these blouses work in a cooperative in Mexico whose mission is to preserve an ancient art form and empower the 600 women and 200 men artisans to thrive as sustainable members of the global marketplace. These artist-entrepreneurs are self-employed, pay their children's school fees, support local health clinics and are leaders in their community.

*Larkin Lane will donate a portion of all sales of our "Kahlo" blouses to help rebuild the cooperative's building that was damaged in the earthquake. Thank you for your support!!
