NAH Collection: The Nahuas are one of the main native indigenous people of Mesoamerica; precursors to the Mexicas and Aztec civilizations. Today the Nahuas are still an important indigenous population predominant across central Mexico. In the state of Puebla, a cooperative of approximately 200 Nahua artisan women dye the local wool using natural pigments they make from plants and insects, later weaving the threads on ancient waist or pedal looms. Once the base fabric is woven, it is carefully decorated with geometric designs of stars, flowers, and birds that are hand embroidered using a technique called "bordado antiguo" (antique embroidery).

Material: 100% wool front, 100% linen back, Invisible zipper, 100% White Duck Feather Filling.
Origin: Puebla.

Care: Dry clean only.
