Vintage and hand-woven on a back-strap loom with 100% cotton, in an vibrant Tangerine Orange base. 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.

Their noble nature and musical colors will hold special meaning to someone who is in tune with their inner spirit or searching for peace within themselves.

This Huipil was 100% handmade from beginning to end; therefore naturally there will be some imperfections. You could see some loose threads, DO NOT pull just snip with scissors. Or you can use BLOUSE SNAG REPAIR NEEDLE to repair weaving stiches.
I love these Kimono’s. I wear them over my workout clothes, so then I can stop at the Grocery store on my way home. I also pack in my travel bag, to wear on a cool night or as my robe. I get many compliments.
