Tehuanas Dreem a la Frida...


Design - Here we have an absolutely exceptional 1920s tp 1930s Tehuanas two piece made by the Zapotec women on the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in a chartreuse golden yellow silk satin with hand made lace trim. These traditional outfits are like some of the same pieces worn by Frida Kahlo. Both the huipil top and tie skirt are heavily embroidered with stylized leaves and flowers. The vines and leaves are a very pale mint green and the flowers come in an array of colors like rose, black, orange, bright pink, vibrant blue, purple, orange and red. The neck of the huipil is embroidered by more delicate purple leaflet design. Typical to the Tehuana style about a foot of hand made lace is attached to the bottom of the silk satin skirt.

These Tejuana sets are extremely hard to find intact, especially in good condition and still together. This is a truly gorgeous example of this stunning indigenous wearable art form of the era.

Material - silk satin, handmade lace, sewn in muslin lining.

Maker - There is no makers mark but this set features the exceptional craftsmanship of the Zapotec women.

Shipping from United States

All items are specially packaged for shipping, which occurs twice a week. In the United states I ship Priority with the USPS only. Shipping confirmation is automatically included. It is the quickest and most reliable shipping option available.

International shipping is First Class. All items are flown via airmail these days, so they all arrive at the same time. First Class is considerably cheaper for my much valued world-wide customers.

Insurance will be purchased for all items over $100. Insurance is a complementary act of Dreem Co.

If an item is time sensitive I am happy to find a solution that works for you.

Refunds

Please shop with care and be sure to ask any and all questions before purchasing an item as ALL SALES ARE FINAL.

Dreem Co. takes an extensive amount of time professionally cleaning and restoring our vintage items so they come to you ready for wear. That being said all of our items are authentically and wonderfully vintage. What this means is that you can expect any vintage/antique clothing to have some wear over time. I do my best to restore/note whatever I can. Even the most excellent grade of vintage is likely to have a minor issue or two. There may be instances where a minor issue, such as a loose seam, pinhole or small stain will not be caught by me no matter how hard I try. Just keep in mind that this is the nature of our rare, gorgeous, unique vintage world and this is why all items are sold AS IS.

Honesty & Quality are the most important goals of Dreem Co. I want you to receive a piece of vintage fashion that will make you look good and feel good too. So please feel free to send a flock of questions my way until you are satisfied that a vintage piece is a good match for you. In return you will receive a prompt and detailed answer. For example, I love to help with sizing! I will do everything I can to help you make sure that a vintage shoe, hat or piece of clothing will be the right fit. If we work together the idea of returning an item would become obsolete.

Additional

Think of buying an item from Dreem Co. as a long distance, long term relationship. I am happy to work with customers long after they have purchased an item to answer questions of any future restoration and preservation issues that may come up over the life time of your vintage fashion piece. It is my utmost goal to preserve vintage fashion history.
