Santa Lucia Tunic - Teal

$ 525.00

Size

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING embroidered tunic from the mountains of Guatemala.  This style tunic (or huipil) was originally used in ceremonies and weddings. The detail of the embroidery is exquisite as is the floral detail on the neckline. Truly art to wear. 

These ceremonial pieces feature designs that date back to Pre-Columbian times. The "zoomorphic" symbols are typically a hummingbird standing on a tobacco plant. The geometric designs are planets or stars (rhombus pattern) and the zig zag pattern which symbolizes eternity. In the words of our artisan partners: "This is an art that is, unfortunately, dying because the ladies are not wearing the ceremonial huipiles as much as they used to. Our weavers learned this art from their ancestors, so it is difficult to find someone who can weave and embroider in this style". We are determined to help keep this art alive! 

Each piece is made to order, so please allow three weeks for your one of a kind piece to be complete. (Shipping times vary). 

Materials:

Hand-woven cotton, some embroidery includes rayon.

Perspective of size: Tunic shape has a flattering drape, sleeves come well below shoulders, and create a cap-like, feminine sleeve. The bottom edge hits below the hips. 

Hand-woven and embroidered in Guatemala.
