This vintage style Cadenilla huipil is made with a foot peddled Singer chain-stitch sewing machine. It was popularized by Frida Kahlo who often wore these colorful garments to honor the traditional hand crafts of indigenous Mayan women.
This huipil presents particularly intricate Cadenilla stitching.
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.
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.
