Chamula Cotton Shirt
Chamula Cotton Shirt
(Based on 3 reviews)
Category: Member Products/Apparel & Accessories

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.

Indian Cotton Embroidered Shirt
Indian Cotton Embroidered Shirt

Lace-making is a relatively recent addition to the vast textile history of the Indian subcontinent. In the 1800s, especially in the eastern coastal Godavari regions, lace-making was introduced as way for poor women to earn an income while still being able to stay home and care for their families. The lace insets that grace the shoulders of this cotton shirt are exactly the type of embellishment that women were creating for export more than 200 years ago. The front is also hand- embroidered with floral patterns in white and ivory. Features tabbed 3/4-length sleeves and a relaxed Mandarin-style collar.
