Telayu´ Red Accent Huipil

USD $57

More info

Telayu’ means "Sunrise" in Zapotec language.

Since pre-Hispanic times, the huipil has been the most common garment among Mexican indigenous women. 

The backstrap loom is a "primitive instrument" composed of several sticks fixed to a point (a tree for example) and the other side tied around the waist of the weaver.

This beautiful huipil blouse has been woven using 100% Cotton threads on a backstrap loom. The designs of the garment are not embroidered, they are achieved by interlacing colored threads with the mainframe.

Each huipil blouse may take up to 4 weeks of hard work to be completed depending on the skills and experience of the weaver. 

Each piece is unique and unrepeatable. Model and style are maintained from piece to piece but color combinations and patterns may vary a little, which gives them the fingerprint from the artisan who left the heart on its elaboration.

Pick the look you want! Mini, Short, Long.
We customize just for you! Other color combinations available, contact us if you have something special in mind.
