Embroidery...On Denim

I’ve been working with Guatemalan artisans forrrreverrrr.  (Yes, I did that on purpose.) Since 1989 to be exact.  The one thing many artisans do to perfection in Guatemala is embroider. Many of you may be familiar with traditional huipil blouses.  This is why I’ve so often included traditional fabric, embroidery, crochet and macramé in my designs.  For us it is not new or trendy – it is.  Sometimes fads catch up to us.  And this season may be one of those.  We’ve noticed all sorts of embroidery on jeans and jackets. We’ve seen decked out handbags in Vogue and Elle. And we’ve noticed lots of high end fashionistas sporting beautiful flowers on denim. We gotcha. This is the season Beyonce should be wearing Dunitz fair trade designs. We’ve got all sorts of hipster cuffs, necklaces and earrings. Our collection is affordable. You should be wearing it. And this season you’ll look completely on trend and like a million bucks. -ND
