Chiapas Mexican Dress - Teal
A light cotton fabric is embroidered in a traditional Mayan pattern based on the traditional "Universe" design. The inner diamond has spirals on each side symbolizing “pepen”, the wings of a butterfly. In Mexican lore, the butterfly is a metaphor for transformation and the sun. When day turns to night, the sun inhabits the underworld to create the eternal fire!
Mexican textiles reflect a passion for color, pattern, and design. Using centuries-old techniques, traditional artisans still use vegetables, fruits, and barks to make natural dyes. Women weave into their clothing intricate patterns with meaning dating back to Mayan times. And families pass the traditions of weaving from generation to generation.
