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!
