One of the most characteristic handmade garments of the Mixe community is undoubtedly the Santa Maria Tlahuitoltepec blouse. The Mixe way of thinking is reflected in it, although we also find symbols of the Mixe Sierra, such as the maguey plant, rivers, dirt roads, the sun and plants, as they are in a permanent relationship with the earth, their origin. This connection is also the reason why the embroidery is filled with red and black threads, which can then be completed with threads of other colours.
