The Gancho style embroidery (punch or hook needle embroidery) found on this huipil is the most difficult technique to master of all the types of Tehuana embroidery.
These hand embroidered, one of a kind huipiles (blouses) are worn by the women of Oaxaca (Tehuanas) both as daily wear, on special occasions, and in ceremony. Frida Kahlo often wore these colorful garments to honor the traditional hand crafts of indigenous Mayan women.
Express your own style. Rock it with jeans and boots, looks great with pencil skirt, broomstick skirt, capris, even a business suit. Perfect for an evening event, or casual afternoon outing.
