🔖We like to honour the inspiration and momentum of each one of the artisans that we work with. Respecting the designing process of the artisans is what makes every piece original and unique. That is why there are no two dresses created equally. (Please refer to pictures with multiple dresses).
The practice of embroidery is a very ancient practice dating from the pre-Hispanic era. Through this technique, artisans make an impression of their reality, using elements that surround them as flowers, birds and landscapes.
This is a dress that, due to its versatility and beauty, has been copied and reproduced in many parts of the world. It is important to distinguish between an original dress and a cheap reproduction, because, with the purchase of an original dress like this, you are contributing to the preservation of a millenary culture and supporting a dignified job and fair trade."
