Blusa de Telar con Deshilado~ Our telar blouses are made with cotton threads using a back strap loom. First, the artisans make thread balls using a wooden warper. Then, they move the thread balls to a wooden loom and set thread by thread on it until it is tight. Afterwards, the artisans begin weaving the fabric using a back strap loom, held on one side from the wooden loom and on the other side by their waste. Finally, the artisans fold the fabric in half and confection it into a blouse by hand stitching the sides of it. It takes our artisan partners 24-40 hours (approximately) to make each blouse. Working with a back strap looms is difficult and requires expertise, artistry, and lots of love and patience! Please measure one of your non-stretchy blouses so you know which size is right for you!
