These hand embroidered, one of a kind trajes (huipil and skirt set) are worn by the women of Oaxaca (Tehuanas) on special occasions, and in ceremony. Frida Kahlo often wore these colorful garments to honor the traditional hand crafts of indigenous Mayan women.
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.
You'll be stunning in this statement piece at your next evening event, wedding, gallery opening, or Frida themed occasion.
Express your own style. Rock the top with jeans and boots, looks great with pencil skirt, broomstick skirt, capris, even a business suit.
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.
