 ABOUT THE OTOMI PEOPLE & THEIR SIGNATURE EMBROIDERY:

The Otomi are from the Tenago Valley of Hildago,Mexico & are known for whimsical characters & crisp graphic shapes..Commonly known as Tenangos, this style of embroidery can be traced back to pre Aztec Meso-America with the symbolism & color ways of the pieces reflecting beliefs of the Otomi people.Their art is very identifiable,not only because of the colorful, whimsical characters,but they embroidered 'bands' of various colors within their subject.

DESCRIPTIONHow can you not love this!! 

Roja pays homage to this whimsical embroidery style known to the Otomi people of Mexico...This is as 'Cultural Couture" as it comes & if you love the colorful,cultural styles of Mexico,then this will have you dancing, with a margarita in hand,south of the border!

Perfect for summer this is designed in a light weight summer weight poly sheer..If you are familiar with Mexican art & it's textiles,then you will see that this has a true Mexican folk art feel,with more vibrancy than you can imagine..It is so colorful that you can wear this with just about any color bottom/jewelry choice,tuck it in or belt it like you see it shown(Belt not included) or pair it with a full fiesta style skirt or dress it down with some denim..Wear it on or off the shoulder since it has an elastic neckline.The embroidery is amazing!!!

The sleeves are typical poofy peasant style & the blouse has elastic sleeves,so you can put them,anywhere you like! 

Because of the embroidery & delicacy of the fabric,this should be hand washed cold,line dry OR dry clean.

Perfect weight for summer Folk Art events, BBQ's,outdoor art walks,gallery openings,days at the beach,etc! 

Jewelry that would look fabulous with this, would be some Oaxaca Dove jewelry or Oaxaca Filigree by Federico or Carlos Gutierrez,both of which I carry!!! Please check my listings.

Made of 100% Poly Sheer.Comes packaged & labeled.This fabric is lightweight & sheer,so you may want to wear a cami underneath.

**PLEASE NOTE**

**MY PHOTOS SHOW THIS TO BE ''WHITE'..IT IS ACTUALLY A 'OFF WHITE'.

Measurements are taken on one side only,so please double.This material has lots of movement,so measurements are approximate.

Peasant Blouses measure differently,since they are not form fitting & since it's a straight cut down,so the underarm,bust,waist,hips measure the same.

They are also very roomy & blousey,so you may be able to go down in size,nut most important,read measurements..There are no shoulder seams,so sleeve length is estimated.
