These gorgeous Kaftans are created using back strap looms and organic coyuche cottons. It takes a month or so to complete each piece.  First the cotton is picked and pulped with a stick.  Then it is hand pulled with a spindle and then off to be dyed.  The dyes are created from various colors only found in nature.   Pomegrante skins and seeds.  Nopal skins.  Shells from nuts and on and on.  The embroidery work represents the familial line of tradition.   These huipils are heritage pieces from our county and are timeless fashion pieces that have now gone couture. Am I grateful to work with individual artisans to create each timeless work of art!

 This particular green one has gorgeous embossed embroidery that is absolutely exquisite!   Green is a rare color to come by so don't miss out!

This fits best a size very loose small to USA10  On a flat lay this piece measures 24  inches across.  Please not that huipils have a different fitting.  Even though the bust is 48 inches in measurement, the boxy design loses width on the body.  47   inches in length
