More info

Bagaze means "Secret" in Zapotec language.

Since pre-Hispanic times, the huipil has been the most common garment among Mexican indigenous women. In their communities they are the ones who make the family's clothes, sometimes embroidering on cotton cloths and in the majority of cases, made in a waist loom.
The waist 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.
The loom allows you to cross the threads along the loom and serve as a framework for the creation of wonderful color designs that convey the feeling that the weaver printed when creating it.
This beautiful huipil has been woven using a waist loom. The artwork of the garment is achieved by interlacing colored threads with the main frame.
The huipil is weaved by stretches or canvases that are then sewn by hand to give it the shape.
Each piece is completely elaborated by hand.
Its loose, light, and fresh fabric is ideal for hot days.
By the nature of the work, each piece is unique and unrepeatable.
The model, style and color combination are preserved but the designs and the distribution of colors may vary slightly from one garment to another.
