The vertical stripes and vibrant colours of the Pantelho Blouse are a perfect combination! Each blouse has been hand woven traditionally on a backstrap loom by women from the Jolom Mayaetik Weaving Co-operative. After the front and back of the blouse is woven, the two panels are stitched together. A unique design is then hand embroidered onto the sleeves and neckline, making each blouse one of a kind. The difficulty involved in the hand made process means that this blouse takes 1 week to create.
A symbol of the sacred toad was embroidered by hand inside the stripes. In Maya belief, the toad signifies a fertile earth. Mayan elders say that when toads sing, the saints are happy and they send rain to earth.
The boxy shape pairs perfectly with boyfriend jeans or denim shorts, so you can wear this beauty all year round!
