    • Mother Earth’s Gifts: All dyes used are plant-based, sourced from vegetables, botanicals, and even insects. No toxic chemicals harm the environment.
    • Preserving Wisdom: By supporting these handwoven tops, you contribute to sustainable livelihoods and the continuation of ancient wisdom.

    • High-Waisted Bottoms: Tuck it into high-waisted jeans, skirts, or shorts for a chic look.
    • Statement Earrings: Let the intricate patterns shine by wearing bold earrings.
    • Sandals or Espadrilles: Keep it casual and comfortable.

Care Instructions:

    • Gentle Hand Wash: Hand wash in cold water using a mild detergent.
    • Air Dry: Lay it flat to dry, avoiding direct sunlight.
    • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Keep it away from bleach or strong detergents.
    • Handle with Care: The delicate beadwork deserves gentle handling.

Remember, each Mayan top tells a story—a connection to the past and a celebration of sustainable fashion.
