Embroidered Blouse - Mayan Blue Ehecatl
Since 2015 our craftswomen have occasionally used special embroidery machines to give an extra touch to their handwoven blouses.
Thanks to them, they can experiment with the design of neater and more intricate patterns, whose refined beauty is further highlighted by locally made dyes.
Here, our blouses shine bright in the rare and intense shade known as Mayan blue for it was the ancient Mayan people who invented it.
It is a very special color that symbolises the vital energy shared by all living beings and spirits...
But there is more to that!
Flowers too were highly revered by the Mayans for being the embodiment of the invisible threads that bind all souls together, making our unique blouses even more powerful talismans of life to live fully with your loved ones:
