Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was known for her eclectic wardrobe that featured traditional Zapotec blouses and skirts as well as pieces from northern Mexico, Guatemala, and beyond. Our cotton Mexican market-day outfit is inspired by that diversity, with a vivid pink blouse and black broomstick skirt made in the villages surrounding Oaxaca state on opposite sides of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. Both the blouse and skirt are hand-dyed in Oaxaca. The semisheer broomstick skirt is ideal for travel—the wrinkles are part of the style. The blouse is embroidered in both Oaxaca and Chiapas by women using a geometric style named for the highland village of Chamula. It's relaxed, breezy style could be worn belted for a more fitted look. Together or as separates, these pieces reflect a flattering, breezy Mexican style that’s perfect for warm-weather exploring. Hues may vary slightly from those pictured because the cotton is hand-dyed.


Made in Mexico. 100% cotton. Women’s sizes S (4–6), M (8–10), L (12–14), XL (16–18).


Machine wash.

    Comments about Oaxaca Broomstick Skirt:

    This was a casual "peasant" looking skirt that didn't look good on me. I returned it because I didn't think I'd wear it.

    The word “bandana” and its distinctive paisley patterns come from the Rajasthani tie-dye technique of bandhani. Thousands of tiny knots are tied in complex patterns across a piece of fabric. When the fabric is dyed, the knotted areas remain light, and dotted patterns emerge as the knots are untied. This bright pink crinkle-cotton skirt is decorated with bandhani patterns and makes a perfect travel garment since its wrinkles are part of the style. Hand-dyed in Jaipur, India.

    Bandhani is a tie-dyeing technique practiced mainly in western India. Intricate patterns are created by wrapping the fabric with string before dyeing it. Bandhani cloth is often used for women’s shawls, but here the technique is adapted for a silky trio of travel-ready garments. Made of a deep blue knit viscose rayon, these wrinkle-resistant separates drape beautifully and expand your travel wardrobe. The ankle-length skirt has an elastic waist and drawstring.

    Traditional Indian styling in a vibrant fuchsia pattern and textured lightweight cotton make an excellent travel outfit. The Indian city of Jaipur has been an artistic center since the 18th century and is known as the Pink City because of the stucco that was used to imitate red sandstone. It is in the Pink City that this bright ensemble is made as part of a thriving cottage textile industry. The loose-fitting style is flattering on any woman, and the crinkle fabric makes this ideal for pack-and-go travel. Expand your travel wardrobe by pairing the tunic with jeans or the skirt with a T-shirt. Made in India of 100% cotton.

    Bandhani is a tie-dyeing technique practiced mainly in western India. Intricate patterns are created by wrapping the fabric with string before dyeing it. When the fabric is untied, natural patterns appear in the places where the string prevented the dye from taking hold. Bandhani cloth is often used for women’s shawls, but here the technique is adapted for a silky pair of travel-ready garments. Made of a black knit viscose rayon, these pieces drape beautifully and expand your travel wardrobe by working as separates or as a set. The shirt also features appliquéd circles of bandhani. Made in Jaipur, India.
