Natural Cotton Huipil with Caracol EmbroideryRegular price $210.00
Soft cotton cloth woven by hand.....embroidered with tradtional motifs. This huipil is the real thing. We found it in Oaxaca, Mexico at a celebration of the art of this classic clothing style. The woman who made it was lauded for her exceptional work.
The purple dye used for some of the embroidery thread is caracol. It is extracted from a snail, without harming the snail! The process is an ancient practice that few artisans know how to do anymore. It's a very special dye and a very special huipil!
Comfort and style, what could be better?
