Smocked Blouse with Reindeer Motif, San Pablo Tijaltepec, Oaxaca


Ships in 5 -7 business days

From our recent tour to San Pablo Tijaltepec in Oaxaca’s Mixteca Alta comes this smocked cotton navy blouse with whimsical reindeer motif on the bodice. Notice the smocking at the shoulder, the detailed hand-embroidery around the neckline, and the ruffle on the sleeve. We met the makers in Mexico City during Original 2023 and were blown away by the quality of their workmanship. All the smocking, called pepenado in Spanish, is done by hand. It takes time and commitment to make this type of work. We love the color palette of the bodice colors that offer a contrast to the navy blue pattern of the base fabric.  This blouse is long sleeve.  It is a size Medium and measures 21″ wide across the front, 25-1/2″ long, and the sleeve is 19″ long from the shoulder seam. Machine washable on cold on gentle cycle with mild detergent, hang to dry, iron as needed.

We are offering the Mixteca Alta Textile and Folk Art Study Tour in March 2025. See our website to learn more. Registration is open.
