The original Ixchel shorts; corduroy (of course!) and cotton twill patches, hip and cargo pockets, in three colors, green, blue, and café, but you knew that too, and our concealed pocket. Drawstring plus elastic waist, cut long, so you might want to go a size smaller than usual for you.There is a size chart on the home page of the shorts collection.
WE HAVE JUST CHANGED OUR IMAGES FOR THE COLORS AVAILABLE to better reflect the actual colors we are selling this year. Yes, we do change the tones of our dyed fabrics from year to year. The images tied to the colors on the menu are THE ACTUAL COLORS WE ARE SELLING THIS YEAR. We hope you like them. They will probably be a bit different again next year.
Also available in our Terrapin shorts (XTC-10) and our new Mayan Serpent shorts embroidered and appliqued, (CXC-10) and built as strong as we can make them, since you are going to tell us right away if they break....
4 sizes (M, L, XL, and XXL) and 3 colors (Blue, Green, and Cafe)
Our most popular patchwork pants style; our supple brushed corduroy and durable cotton twill patchwork with big cargo pockets. When the day warms up, it zips off below the knee to give you our festival famed Classic Cargo Patchwork Short.
BACK IN STOCK in 2017 COLORS / SIZES- Now Available in Small!!
SEPT !! : MOST SIZES / COLORS ARE BACK IN STOCK !!
We managed to get one last end of summer run of the garment dyed patchwork shorts back in; this is it for this 2016; we'll have a new garment dyed collection in 2017!
We are truly sorry if your size or color is no longer available, demand for the garment dyed shorts was much higher than we anticipated this summer.
Our Classic Cargo Patchwork shorts with a Terrapin applique, lovingly embroidered with a hand woven ikat applique! The same classic style that took the lot by storm in the summer of '98, upgraded (we never stop upgrading, even our classic styles, they may have the same look that defined the patchwork style, but in little ways we keep improving them) In our soft corduroy, dyed in house so they match, and cotton twill, with a big cargo pocket and our Terrapin applique in the center.
In 3 colors and 4 sizes, Medium to XX Large. $59.00
We just updated 1 image- the latest batch in green have a lighter olive color in the twill patches (see image on menu) we will probably go back to the original palette later this year, but for now, this is the green we are shipping.
Our Classic Patchwork Pants are back in Stock for fall/winter!!
The style that wrote the book on patchwork, (and thanks to you for your support on that!) in the same soft corduroy and durable cotton twill, in our dyed-in-house all new for 2017 color pallet, available in 5 sizes and three colors. This is the FIRST RUN we finally got around to in the 2017 corduroy colors- and the images have been updated to show the actual colors.
We've re-done these in the same soft textured cotton with hand woven accents, in four new colors, now in five sizes, to try to fit everyone!
Our new all patchwork summer shorts! Lighter than corduroy, but still durable, in 100% cotton hand woven mercerized native Ikat. Not quite as long as our "XC" style cargo shorts, but still over the knee. We aren't going to do unique variants on these, the colors of the individual patches will vary slightly, but all are in the same color family your choice of Blue, Green, or Café, and the woven patterns will always vary.
The festival sensation. Now available online!
Then we seek out the best Huipiles; native blouse material, each tiny pattern brocaded by hand on an ancient back-strap loom.
We carefully sort these bolts of timeless textile art and then we cut and sew them into the kind of casual garments you wear today: like these hooded pullovers, with a comfortable cut and feel, pre-shrunk & softened, with all the touches you would expect, a big hood & pockets, drawstrings at the waist & hood, and a well-concealed stash pocket. In five sizes and a world of color choices.
it has been brought to our attention that we should clarify the materials; the entire woven garment is of %100 cotton, however, to make them comfortable and neatly finished, they are lined along the hood and across the shoulder yoke with satin polyester, while the wearable shell of the entire garment is still technically %100 cotton, the small lining area is not.
Each one is sold as a unique variant; the one that you pick is the one you'll get!
(Click on an image for your size, if that one hasn't been sold, it's available!
- we put up new garments every week, as they sell, so watch this space!)
Our most popular backpack ever! A big daypack; all in corduroy, heavily re-enforced with durable synthetic inner liners (like we say, you can't really make a 'natural fiber' artesanal backpack that can live up to the standards of a modern sport bag without some synthetic materials- nylon & polyester don't break, especially if you know how to use it) 1,700 cu. in. capacity; BIG, with all the right touches:Organizer pocket inside, mesh media pocket on strap holds all smartphones snugly, ergonomic strap geometry, the best concealed pocket ever.
3 shades of corduroy in each bag, in three choices: Blue, Green, Cafe
We took our popular Terrapin embroidery and put it on these cargo shorts, in a soft summer weight cotton, dyed, softened and pre-shrunk to perfection. In two colors, Forest and Dark Smoke. The Dark Smoke option has a hand woven Ikat applique in the center. M, L, XL, & now in XXL. 6 Pockets plus our concealed pocket. Cut in a long, baggy pattern, like all our "X" collection pants and shorts.
NOW BACK IN STOCK ALL COLORS/SIZES!!
Please note the "Smoke"color from last year is now in a Dark Brick color for fall; most people like it, but it is not the grey we offered this spring. (The individual product image shows the new color)
(the same short in our new Two-Headed Mayan Eagle DOES come in the Sky Grey)
( the same short with a Lotus embroidery in two different colors-still available)
Here is one image of the embroidery detail, and one image for each color, these represent the actual colors we are carrying this year.
This is the new long patchwork pants version of our #1 selling hand woven patchwork shorts w corduroy accents. We have a bigger color selection for 2016. We'll see what our customers most want and then maybe we'll change the palette. We went to 5 sizes this time; small to XX Large. The same softened and pre shrunk cotton Ikat, lovingly hand woven from mercerized cotton yarn that is hand dyed to form the patterns in the weave.
