The Puebla Embroidered Dress is a loose and airy dress with a very comfortable fit. This folkloric ethnic dress was embroidered using a foot pedal machine in the community of San Gabriel Chilaca, in the state of Puebla, Mexico. This Cotton dress is very versatile and extra comfortable. It can be worn as a summer dress with sandals, as a casual or winter outfit with leggings or a pair of jeans. This chic dress has ties on the back to adjust for a more fitted or relaxed fit. Each dress is uniquely different, as it is subject to the imagination and momentum of the craftsman. The color combination and motifs that adorn them are always variable.
We like to honor 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).
