Handwoven Mexican huipiles just for Crazy Fox

In addition to our usual wonderful collections from Margaret O'Leary, Indigenous Designs, Forte and Equestrian, we've added huipiles, blouses and tunics handwoven on a backstop loom by Juana Reyes Garcia in San Juan Colorado, Oaxaca Mexico.  Maya worked with her at the International Folk Art Festival a couple of years ago and she has been sending us pieces since then.  She uses all natural dyes from seeds and fruits and the cochineal beetle, and coyuche brown cotton, and ancient technique.  Her work is incredible; she was supported by the Museo Textile de Oaxaca.
