Both the front and back of this blouse are completely covered in pink-red, intricate hand-embroidery depicting fanciful interpretations of flora and fauna of the region. The bright embroidery is particularly striking on the black background. With such extensive hand-embroidery it can take over a month to create one dress.
The rayon base creates a flattering drape on the feminine body. Light and cool, you will be extremely comfortable while always looking elegant when dressed in this versatile Jalapa dress, from the office to the opera.
Because these items are hand-crafted by local artisans using traditional techniques, slight variations may occur. Note that colors may vary according to each display monitor.
