This style of embroidery is my hands down favorite in all of Oaxaca. It’s like the cloth underneath is struggling to find light through the abstract jungle of overlaid embroidered flowers, birds, plants and geometric designs. 

This blouse is really elegant. It could be worn dressed up (I’d wear it to work) or dressed down with worn-in jeans. I’m learning how to accurately describe colors in this new role, and struggled with this one. The blouse has an earthiness and richness to it. As with all clothing in this collection, it is not tightly fitted, but the rayon drapes in the right places. I would say it is about a medium.

I have a few other pieces from the same village in the collection, so please check them out as well to get an idea of the craftsmanship coming from this magical place.
