Embroidered Blouse - Orange Ehecatl
Thanks to special embroidery machines, our weavers can add an extra touch to their handwoven blouses by creating neater and more intricate patterns whose beauty is made even more resplendent by their vibrant crafty dyes!
The floral embroideries that adorn each blouse are a symbol of life and connection between all living beings and spirits.
In Mayan and Aztec cultures, it is Ehecatl, the god of the winds, who supports this interconnectedness by spreading the intense fragrances of flowers towards the four corners of the cosmos to bring together all souls.
To reach those dispersed in the South, he must enter the territory of Huitzilopochtli, the powerful god of war...
It is fortunate though that Huitzilopochtli is associated with hummingbirds and thus welcomes gladly the passage of Ehecatl's floral breaths.
