About

My dream SHKAÁLA DE MICAELA

Soy Sara, nací en Oaxaca, México. Hace 9 años, cuando yo tenía 12 años y después de graves problemas socio- políticos en nuestro estado que nos llevó a la mayor crisis económica familiar, mi madre decidió que debía trabajar fuera de casa y solo haciendo algo que le encantara podría hacerlo. Así fue como nació Shkaála de Micaela (tienda física en Oaxaca, México) que significa "mi sueño" en zapoteco y Micaela que es el nombre de mi madre). Crecí viendo cosas lindas hechas por manos trabajadoras y pacientes, conocí a quienes con amor puntada tras puntada creaban piezas únicas, también conocí a personas recias y orgullosas de su tradición y cultura, me enamoré. Soy una fanática de las cosas hechas a mano. Desde pequeña he tenido la suerte de ver cotidianamente la ropa Vintage de Tehuantepec, con sus vistosos y elaborados bordados, a mano o a máquina, todos bellos y con esa pátina que da el tiempo y el uso: colores desgastados, bordados intrincados, olanes almidonados, la transparencia, la suavidad y las historias que no se cuentan pero que se intuyen al ver las prendas... ¡Me encanta ver, tocar y portar estas prendas!
Por el momento estudio en Ciudad de México y gracias al internet puedo trabajar en este proyecto. En mis vacaciones selecciono, compro y catalogo las prendas que vendemos en nuestra tienda física y en shkaalacolección de Etsy.
Espero que tu disfrutes tanto como yo nuestra selección, que te haga tan feliz como a mi y en algún momento puedas llevarte un pedacito de Shkaála a casa.

    Since I was a little kid I've been surrounded by color and traditions, that was how I learned to love traditional clothing. I love to see, touch and to wear huipiles. I select and catalogue every huipil and traje that we show you here.

Frequently asked questions
Instrucciones para el cuidado

Estos artículos al ser vintage requieren de algunos sencillos cuidados: se pueden lavar a mano con jabón neutro, sin tallar y secar a la sombra en posición horizontal.

Información sobre las tallas

Estos artículos no se manejan por tallas. El huipil es un rectángulo de tela bordada con un hoyo para la cabeza, doblada a la mitad y costuras laterales dejando el espacio para que entre el brazo. La medida que damos es de este rectángulo doblado. Lo que especificamos como ancho multiplíquelo por dos y compárelo con su contorno de busto.

Instrucciones para el cuidado

En el caso de las enaguas o faldas se sugiere descoser el olán para lavar.
