San Miguel Cajonos, Oaxaca
The Huipil Cajonos is woven on a pedal loom with hand-spun silk and dyed with natural dyes. Its shape is narrow, however with a great texture and beautiful drape due to the combination of threads and colors. The V-shaped neck at the front and back highlights any figure. A detail of silk cocoons with fringes stands out on the edge. It is a huipil of great versatility with the possibility of being used both on the beach and in the city.
Care: Dry clean suggested.
