A magnificent example of traditional Mayan weaving, this lightweight cotton huipil is the ideal wardrobe addition for textile aficionados. Handwoven by a master artisan on traditional backstrap loom, this blouse features a semi-transparent fine weave known as petet, along with detailed design features. Every work takes over two months to produce – end to end. Stunning in slate grey, this piece works a range of occasions, and exists as a timeless work of art.

Artisan
Hecho collaborates with a handful of talented weavers who create these original works with fine cotton thread, portable backstrap looms and the shared knowledge of their mothers and grandmothers before them.
