The Northern Nahua (Aztec) women of the lower zone of La Huasteca in Veracruz, Mexico, generally wear these Zontecomatlan blouses. Each piece takes up to 3 months to complete by hand. Each blouse contains a unique iconography representing popular zoomorphic and phytomorphic elements of their Nahua (Aztecan) heritage.

These pieces feature a typical flower-water zigzag pattern based on Aztec mythology that revered and idolized flowers. They traditionally weave these patterns at the shoulder and neck of the garment.

The sleeves feature a series of "trees of life," "the pine flower," and other zoomorphic elements, such as birds. The side of these pieces includes citlalime (pertains to "stars" in Nahua/Aztec), running from the neck to the lower part of the blouse. The front is plain, containing one only element, the Ome Xochitl, meaning "two flowers."

Each piece is handmade so there will be variations in the sizing and stitching.
Comfortably fits sizes S - L
