Breezy Guatemalan Tunic


In Coban, Guatemala, women have long woven a beautiful, breezy white cotton gauze for their blouses, or huipiles.  In a hot, humid region of the cloud forest where these women live, it is lovely to have this loose beautiful covering to keep one cool.

We think it is also beautiful as a beach cover-up or a simple tunic for summer's wear. Hand-brocade from the back-strap loom means weeks of work for each piece, and decorative hand-stitching uniting the panels makes for a delicate and summery beauty.
