Sublimation print on polyester fabric, cut it into strips, woven through a ´honeycomb´steel wire net.
Size 39 x 31 x 16.5”.
Place of origin:
Huahutla de Jiménez, Oaxaca
The typical regional dress features
a long tunic, known as a
huipil, decorated with
cross-stitch embroidery in floral
and bird motifs.
They also wear a simple wraparound
skirt, or enredo, also
decorated in cross-stitch
and belted with a red sash, and
huarache sandals on their feet.
They comb their hair parted
in the middle, with two braids
interwoven with black
ribbons, which fall over their
chests. The arrangement is
topped by a traditional
fringed rebozo which they drape
over their heads to protect
themselves from the sun.
