Hand Woven Hoodie with Hand Brocaded Accents

 The festival sensation. Now available online!

To the people of the Mayan Highlands of Guatemala, it's called corte; short 5 or 6 yard bolts of cloth, made from skeins of hand dyed  cotton yarn, woven by hand on a treadle loom to form jaspes, the finely detailed patterns that the fabric reveals when the dyed warp yarns are woven into place, creating a world of native images: Cats, stags & jaguars, mythical creatures like two-headed eagles, and the holy corn plant.Mary Fair Hoodies

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!)
