Detailed with stunning hand-embroidery, this vintage Huipil (traditional blouse) is originally from Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala.
Blouses from Santiago Atitlan are well known for their amazing hand embroidery of birds. This beautiful vintage piece features many small hand-embroidered birds on the body of the blouse and breathtaking hummingbirds (colobri) at the neckline. The base material is 100% cotton in white with purple vertical lines.
Wear it with denim or linen pants for a casual picnic day in the sun, or spice it up with a skirt and boots for a fun night out on the town! Either way you wear it, heads will turn towards your boho-stylish self.

Please note: The entire piece is a genuine hand-woven and therefore shows some signs of age and loose thread but has no holes or repairs and is in remarkably good condition considering its age. Many Huipiles are now embroidered using sewing machine which can also be referred to as 'hand made'. This piece is made entirely without the use of machine.
My huipil top is beautiful.

This item fits perfect and the embroidery is beautiful. It’s ornate enough to wear for Zoom business meetings and comfortable for cozy days at home. 10/10 recommend all products from this vendor- you will not be disappointed in the quality and crafts-woman-ship!
Super stylish high quality basket. Can be used for many purposes. Also great as a gift.
Beautiful a bit small for me but will wear it with honor with respect for my ancestors
