As with all leather and handmade goods, fine craftsmanship is expected yet perfection is not part of its character. This is all the true nature of one of a kind artisan items. Every piece of leather will have characteristics of a raw nature or what one would imagine as “imperfections”. The more that is seen, the more of it’s true form it is in.

This also applies to the nature of handwoven and vintage textiles. Slight pulls or loose threads can be found. Wear is also noticeble. As this is a blouse once worn by indeginous Mayan women. Please understand that this is all part of the beauty of these products.
