Artfully hand embroidered, our vintage Mexican-styled "La Marina" peasant top in Black captures the essence of the beach gypsy's lifestyle: Adventurous, carefree and ever beautiful. "La Marina" features ornate smocking on the bust line and crochet trim around the neck and 3/4 sleeve hems. Made of light and airy 100% cotton fabric caringly embroidered by hand, these tops and dresses are perfect on hot summer afternoons. Our colorful and ornate floral patterns are a faithful tribute to the time honored traditional Oaxacan peasant blouses of the 1970's.

Offered as One-Size-Fits-Most (XS - L, see garment measurements below), the "La Marina" peasant blouse in black makes for a slightly more formal twist on the peasant blouse.

The Siren logo tag is block-printed by hand on muslin fabric and adds the perfect finishing touch. Block printing involves etching a mirror image of the art in a block of semi-hard rubber, coating the block with waterbased eco-friendly fabric paint, and pressing the block to the fabric to leave an imprint of the art or logo on the cloth. Block printing dispenses with the harsh chemicals, volitile inks and extra materials required in traditional screenprint methods. Every printing results in something unique.

Each "La Marina" Mexican peasant blouse is hand dyed and embroidered so each top is like a one-of-a-kind work of art. For this reason, your top will be very similar to the one in the photo, using the same embroidery patterns, but there will be subtle differences. The colors used may be slightly different than those shown in the photo.

Care: Hand or machine wash cool on gentle cycle with like colors only. Hang to dry or machine dry delicate.

Sizing: Wear these billowy and flowing in the bohemian style, or add a belt or sash for a sexier look.

Bust: 38"
Bottom Hem: 56"
Length (back of neck to bottom hem): 23"
Sleeve Length (armpit to sleeve hem): 9.5"
