Made in Tuxtepec, Oaxaca, this stunning Jalapa blouse is a show stopper!
Both the front and back of this blouse are completely covered in colorful, 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 blouse.
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 blouse, whether paired with capris or jeans for a casual afternoon, or with a skirt for more dressy events from the office to the opera.
Because these items are hand-crafted by local artisans using traditional techniques, slight variations may occur.
