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 both beautiful and fun. Don’t wear this if you don’t want compliments from strangers. It could be worn dressed up or dressed down with worn-in jeans. As with all clothing in this collection, it is not tightly fitted, but this fits well, as 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.
