Boy's short-sleeved shirt / jacket from Nahuala
The women of the village of Nahuala make the clothing of their menfolk in the same way they make their own clothing. The striped fabric is usually hand-loomed on a backstrap loom, and the decorated pieces which make up the collar and cuffs are handmade. All are then cut and sewn into a western-style shirt, which is usually closed up the front with commercial buttons. This shirt is made from such hand-woven fabric. The collar, pockets and zipper closure are decorated with a hand-woven design.
