Women from the Xchanel Amtel community hope to make their traditional Chiapan embroidered blouses a trend in Mexico City. World Vision’s project sends the embroidered blouses from the state of Chiapas to buyers in Mexico’s capital. Women embroider shirts in their community square. All profits from their hand-stitched blouses go directly to them and their families.
