Hermoso Huipil





When pedalling from village to village some of the most defining handicrafts we see are their textiles. Michoacan offers a rich selection in its traditional blouses (huipiles), shawls (rebozos), and blankets. Thankfully limited pannier space prevents me from buying everything I see or, by now, I'd be able to supply a small museum.

Beautiful photos! Makes me excited for our trip this summer to visit friends in San Cristobal. Happy riding.
