Fidelia Hernandez

"In my family, embroidering blouses is an activity that has been passed down from generation to generation."

"In my family, embroidering blouses is an activity that has been passed down from generation to generation. I am Fidelia... Hernández. I was born in Aguacatenango in the state of Chiapas. I am an artisan in the elaboration of blouses and with beautiful embroidery in cotton thread.

“I learned this beautiful art when I was a little girl and I watched my mother make them at home in a way that I found fascinating. It was through the teaching of those skills that my mother showed me the importance of responsibility with each activity that she carried out, however simple it might seem. Every time I worked with my mother, I began to realize that I liked this beautiful craft. One of the reasons was because it seemed comforting, and helped me to concentrate more and more on my other duties. I realized that, little by little and through constant practice, I was able to do embroidery without any help. This made me make a very important commitment to my family and to myself in deciding to be an artisan. I particularly enjoy making the decorative elements; it allows me to give a special and personal touch to each of my pieces.

“At the beginning of this project of sharing our work with more people, it implied an investment of time and an incredible effort for each member of the family. We started by focusing first on what we wanted to achieve with our blouses, and that led us to create eye-catching designs and make a positive impact on our customers. For each of our pieces we use cloth, thread of the highest quality, and of course our hands that are the most important touch we want to share.

“Now our main project and focus is to share our work with more people. We wish with all our heart to transmit the passion we feel for our work; and how our Mexico is beautifully decorated with the essence of each one of us.”

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

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.

By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.
