Naturally Dyed Blouse - Indigo Jaspe
These precious blouses are stars in the millennial sky of our weavers' cultural heritage!
By relying on their ancestors' teachings, passed on from one generation to the other, their skilled hands can create unique crafts that carry a special message of cultural resilience and innovation.
Here, these marvellous blouses result from combining the traditional jaspe weaving technique with handmade natural dyes that come from the native plants of Guatemala.
In particular, each precious thread of organic cotton was manually dyed with a special tone of blue that is derived from the indigo plant and that is extremely rare to find outside of Mayan weavers' communities.
Thanks to the jaspe weaving technique, each of these valuable blouses is extremely comfy to wear, breathable and fashionable to satisfy even the pickiest of tastes!
