Blue Dropwaist Dress

Blue Dropwaist Dress


Our Blue Dropwaist Dress is hand woven on a backstrap loom in the small village of Santa Catarina Palopó. The weaving technique used by these women creates an elevated design. This results in an added texture and beauty to the textile. The technique is known as supplemental-weft brocading.

These dot motifs are usually used as fillers in designs. The women had never done a whole textile of polka dots alone.
