Our Costa Huipil was handwoven on a backstrap loom by Angela from La Flor de Xochistlahuaca Women's Cooperative in Mexico.
This stunning design features traditional Amuzgo motifs. The depth of colours used to create our Costa Huipil were derived from natural dyes and cotton. The base of the huipil was dyed with wild flowers found in the community, while the brocade is a combination of natural green cotton and coyuche which is a native brown cotton. Due to their handmade nature, each huipil takes over a week to create from start to finish. This includes spinning the cotton, weaving the design and hand sewing the side seams.
Wear this divine creation knowing that it is a work of art that holds an incredible history and celebrates ancient techniques. It is designed to be loved forever and passed down through the generations.
Wear it to the beach or dress it up with white pants, a belt or heels, it is such a versatile piece.
