Product Description
Huipil Vest San Juan white with brocade in grey

One panel huipil type vest with side pockets and hanging bangs at the bottom, as well as crochet finishing on the edges, slightly open at the bottom side. The embroidered figures are centipedes.

This vest can be combined as a total look in white either in a winter style with a sweater, light boots or in the summer with

jeans tank top or t-shirt blouse and sandals, heels, as well as accessories either with color or in silver or gold. The word huipil comes from the Nahuatl word huipilli, which means blouse or ornate dress. The huipil speaks and has its own voice. Through each embroidery and stitch that craftsmen and craftswomen have captured in it, it tells stories and transmits feelings.

Its elaboration process begins by tangling the thread to form a warp, which is when it is ready to start weaving, the process of embroidery in the traditional backstrap loom.

Each piece is unique and unrepeatable so it has its own peculiarities of its manual manufacture, these small imperfections should not be seen as flaws but as part of its unique character. Elaboration time 5-6 weeks

Huipil Vest San Juan white with brocade in grey

William Ulises, San Juan Colorado, Oaxaca

Huipiles in backstrap loom

William Ulises started the workshop with his family, His mother taught him the art of the backstrap loom. Together with his sisters and his mother they organized themselves and founded their own workshop.

Since then they have grown sustainably and prosperously. Today there are almost 30 people, ranging in age from 25 to 60 years old, working at the workshop full time.

The artisans dedicate approximately five hours a day to this work. They can´t do more hours because on the one hand they have to take care of their families and on the other hand they have to take advantage of the natural sunlight. If the weather is bad it can be less hours. In their workshop the creation of a huipil can take up to 6–8 weeks, depending on the weather conditions. Each huipil varies according to the complexity and number of looms.

Ulises and his family are excellent people. Since I first met them they have shown nothing but kindness to me. They have invited me for dinner, showed me how they make their beautiful looms and of course shared a number of laughs with me.

They are hardworking and committed people, it is a pleasure to work with them.
