Clothing made in Ajijic by hand from manta, a cotton textile originally favored by many indigenous groups in Mexico.

More Info

The handmade clothes at Fiaga are made from manta, a comfortable cotton fabric that was originally favored by some of Mexico’s indigenous groups.

The dresses, blouses, pants, and shirts created here have high-quality stitching and are made to last. They also keep their fit after each washing.

Manta is 100% natural unbleached cotton with a texture that resembles linen.

Shirts like this in Mexico are also referred to as a 'camisa de Yucatán,' where they were originally very popular, or a Mexican wedding shirt, as these shirts are sometimes worn during weddings.
