$138.00

Handmade in Chajul, El Quiche, Guatemala, this top will add a geometric and flashy style to your wardrobe. Wear it with denim or linen pants for a casual picnic day in the sun, or spice it up with a skirt and boots for a fun night out on the town! Either way you wear it, heads will turn towards your boho-stylish self.

This pre-loved top was hand-woven on a back-strap loom, 100% cotton in a white base with a variety of colorful and vibrant Mayan designs. This type of top is one of our most popular garments because of how soft and cool the hand-woven fabric feels.k The sides of the blouse are made from 100% cotton panels in cherry red.
