Folk Costumes of Mexico



A land of rich cultural traditions, Mexico is divided into many different regions and each has its very own folk artistry that includes unique costumes defined by a myriad of patterns, prints and color combinations. This new paper doll book by Alina M. Kolluri takes us on a fashion journey through this fascinating country.

Fun and educational, this charming book depicts 24 authentic folk costumes from 24 Mexican states, created in a naïve style that represents folk art and captures the spirit of a culture that embraces its Native American heritage as well as the influence of Spain. Page after page is filled with dresses, skirts, blouses, jackets, shawls, sombreros and accessories, from such states as Sonora, Oaxaca, Puebla, Yucatan, Durango, Baja California, and Chihuahua. A trio of pretty Mexican lady paper dolls looks delightful as they don the many varied looks from this enchanting land south of the border.
