Naturally Dyed Blouse - Mosaic of Sololá

$79.90

Through the buzzing avenidas of Sololá, unique mosaic tiles take part in a very special parade where the vibrant colors of Guatemala blend with the millennial patterns of its culture and history:
we are talking about our weavers' precious blouses, made with the ancient Mayans' jaspe weaving technique.


This special skill has a lot in common with the art of mosaic composition for each thread of cotton is first dyed and then intertwined: in doing so, our craftswomen's experienced hands bring to light refined geometric shapes, animals and flowers that were only visible to their eyes.
You might say it is a kind of magic too... and we would totally agree!


Coupled with the bright shades of our handmade natural dyes, these unique blouses are a refined and appreciated work of art, showcased in the cheerful streets of Sololá by its friendly people and adventurous visitors.


Check them out and let them embrace you in a soft and delicate hug!
