Summer Style with our new Blouse Collection!

We are so excited to release our new blouse collection! Due to the handmade nature of each piece, the collection took 2 months to be completed and we are so proud of the end result. Our artisan partners from the Jolom Mayaetik Women's Weaving Cooperative hand embroidered each design with such skill and beauty. The quality, texture and combination of colours are breathtaking.

Knowing that you are wearing a piece that was hand embroidered stitch by stitch is so special and rare. How beautiful it is to wear a design created from tradition and by the artisan herself. Each blouse comes with the name of the artisan who created it, so you can honour her.
