About this deal

The rebozo has many uses: it offers the wearer protection from sun and cold; it also carries goods and infants. This cute pet Mexican walking fish design features a pink axolotl with 5 stars and the text, “Axolotls: A review.

Her voluminous skirt is trimmed with hand-made lace; geometric designs, chain-stitched on a sewing machine, decorate her huipil of commercially made cloth. Patterned cotton cloth of this type, printed with floral and other designs, was often imported from the English city of Manchester. The sarape, an overgarment widely worn by men in rural areas, reached its zenith during the late 18th and early 19th centuries.With it's bold colours and stand out Mexican skull print, this shirt is definitely one to get you noticed. In 1828, the Italian artist Claudio Linati published a lithograph showing a 'Young Woman of Tehuantepec'. A round neck opening, hemmed in red, has been cut in the centre panel; the garment's sides are seamed, leaving large openings for arms. Each morning, when the wearer puts on her skirt, she arranges the cloth in a series of folds or pleats.

Women wearing richly embroidered Tehuana clothing for the Feast of the Assumption in Santa María Reoloteca, Tehuantepec, Oaxaca state. Our collection includes a sarape, thought to date from the 1880s, which was tapestry-woven to dazzling effect. Traditional garments are not tailored in the European manner: instead they are assembled from squares or rectangles of cloth. Smaller motifs, many showing birds and animals, form bands of pepenado fruncido – an elaborate embroidery technique.

Thanks to its geometric construction, the huipil helped Kahlo to look taller and, when she was seated (Kahlo spent her final years in a wheelchair), prevented the fabric from bunching up around her waist. After the Revolution, when Mexican leaders and intellectuals were keen to build a sense of nationhood, the Tehuana became a cultural symbol. Personalized advertising may be considered a “sale” or “sharing” of information under California and other state privacy laws, and you may have a right to opt out. Our textile collection includes a fine ankle-length example, made over a century ago, probably in the Mixteca Alta region – where Mixtec and Triqui weavers still create traditional huipiles on the backstrap loom today. A famous photograph taken by Nickolas Muray in New York shows her wearing one of her Tehuana ensembles.
