Ensemble from the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, Oaxaca. The huipil (tunic) was made from cotton, and the enagua (petticoat) from cotton cloth printed with floral designs. Because Tehuana women were fond of printed cloth from Manchester, England, it was widely sold throughout the region. The chain-stitched designs, on huipil and skirt, were done on a sewing machine with cotton threads of contrasting colours.
