Each Gitane is as unique as the individual fabrics. The Huipil pattern wraps from front to back. The wristlet is fully lined and has a zip closure at the top with a comfortable leather wrist strap.

Drawing upon the master craft-making techniques that have been a part of their culture for generations, our artisans skillfully handcraft these beautiful pieces individually, combining contemporary designs with ancient traditions. This village industry provides families an opportunity to maintain the tradition of handcrafting while sharing an expression of their indigenous culture with the world. By respecting cultural tradition, creating a cooperative working atmosphere, and paying sustainable wages, these women and their families have become empowered with new skills and have an opportunity for economic stability. Your Wholesale orders help us support them.
