kaftan pink-white-plum crochet

549.00

this san juan Huipil has been hand picked by myself whilst visiting this village.

this unique creation is loomed on a back strap loom and the figures represent unity they are woven into the garment as it is loomed it is a very intricate technique that is considered the most difficult type of weaving by mixtec women, once each panel is loomed it is then crochet together which takes forever (i know i waited for one to be finished in August x remember the video of Ricarda's stitching?)

i love my artisans from this village they are amazing examples of strong women &I truly honour their incredible fortitude.
