Details

Lavish and luxurious, these earrings are extra long. Crafted by hand, they are a modern interpretation of a traditional Huichol craft. Each bead in the medallions and fringe is carefully placed to create the intricate geometric motifs. By artisans of Mexico's Huichol Center for Cultural Survival and Traditional Arts, the design beautifully combines dusty rose and mint green with black and ivory.

Huichol Center for Cultural Survival and Tradition

"Our goal is to preserve the beautiful traditions of the Huichol people through crafts, spiritual practices, training for families, medical assistance, and Indigenous education."

The Huichol Center for Cultural Survival and Traditional Arts is a nonprofit organization based in Jalisco, Mexico, that... supports the endangered Wixárika, or Huichol tribe through language education, ethnographic documentation, and traditional crafts. It was founded by anthropologist Susana Valadez in 1996.

"The Huichol arrived in the area of Barranca de Bolaños after the Tepecanos or Tepehuanes arrived. Tepehuana oral history affirms that some populations currently inhabited by Wixárika, such as Santa Catarina, were inhabited by Tepehuanas in the past.

"The Huichol people are one of the oldest indigenous communities in Mexico. Its population can currently be estimated at around 44,000 people, who live mainly in the center-west of the country, in some areas of the Sierra Madre Occidental (Sierra Huichola) between the states of Jalisco, Nayarit and Durango.

"In Spanish, they are known as Huichol, a word possibly derived from the term with which they were named in the Nahuatl language spoken by the Aztecs. But in their own language — which they keep alive like a treasure — they call themselves Wixárika (pronounced virárica). The Huichol, or Wixárika people are widely recognized for having preserved their spiritual identity and for continuing to practice their cultural and religious traditions for thousands of years.

"Our goal is to preserve the beautiful traditions of the Huichol people through crafts, spiritual practices, training for families, medical assistance and indigenous education.

"Among their spiritual traditions is the ritual collection and consumption of peyote, a hallucinogenic cactus in the place they call Wirikuta, located in the Real de Catorce region, in the state of San Luis Potosí. Peyote does not grow in the Wixaritari region, but it is abundant in San Luis Potosí, a territory that was the central domain of the Guachichiles before the arrival of the Spanish. The Guachichiles were recognized as an ethnic group fiercely defensive of their territory.

"Among our projects to promote cultural activities is Creative Hands, which promotes economic self-sufficiency by training Wixárika artists in traditional and contemporary arts. The main mission of the Huichol Cultural Center is to create lasting bridges to the future, by preserving a pioneering tradition of our country."

FINDING YOUR SIZE

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Our standard inseam length for women is 32" and 34" for men; however inseam measurements will vary slightly by style.

 

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.
