Shadow Blue Embroidered Linen Jumpsuit
Blue Linen Jumpsuit with tie up straps and hand embroidered adjustable belt straps. Handmade in Mexico.
This jumpsuit is made from 100% linen with an adjustable belt and wooden button fastening. The belt features hand-embroidered flowers and leaves, transporting us to bright sunny Mexican days. The straps are also adjustable as they are tied, so you can create a sweet bow on the back or on your shoulders. We sometimes cross the straps at the back to switch things up.

Beatriz is in her late 50s and has been doing embroidery all her life. She learnt the art from her mother and has learnt a range of techniques through years of practise. Hand embroidery techniques such as the french knots, stem stitch and woven wheel could never be replicated by a machine. She works meticulously and carefully creating beautiful designs from her home in the outskirts of Mexico City. She visits us with her daughter who helps her prepare the threads before embroidery.

When hand washing is not an option, use the most delicate cycle on your machine. The use of cold water is recommended and never hot. Turn the piece inside out to protect the outer side when washing and prevent the sun from fading the fabric while drying.
