Vintage 1970s green Mexican maxi peasant dress, embroidered with colorful children at play, birds and flowers

I could only find one article on Lepe y Lupe Boutique and it was from February 1980, so 70s it is!

It was very difficult to get the color to show right in the photos. The photos with the white background are closest to the true color. This playful, hippie, boho / bohemian ethnic peasant dress is extremely lightweight. It is soft to the touch and very well crafted.

Some may call this a caftan or kaftan, but this ethnic, Mexican peasant dress is truly a yoke dress in design and similar in style to the Oaxacan embroidery that was so popular in the 70s and 80s.

Did you know that Mexican textiles have existed for more than 7000 years? Mexico's indigenous textile culture is in danger of extinction and mostly worn only by Grandmothers today. The embroidered designs are particular to specific towns and ethnic groups. The textiles identify the groups and villages from where the various textiles come.

This is a wonderful beach or cover up dress and it belts up beautifully.
