This is a spectacular, authentic Huipil from Chajul, Quiche Guatemala.

Pre-loved and hand-woven on a back-strap loom with "Aleman" soft BABY PINK base. It is one of our most popular garments because of how soft and cool the hand-woven fabric feels.

This stunning Huipil has a woven-embroidered design of an a Mayan lady. When I first purchased this top, I was so intrigued about the details that I asked the owner more about the lady in pink. The owner shared that this is a weaving of a Maya lady getting ready to go out to a party or a celebration. The weaving depicts a lady with her hair gathered up in a traditional "Tocoyal" (Mayan head-wrap), wearing earrings, and high heel shoes. I loved the story and I love how soft this top is and so will you!

Flat Measurements: 

  • This top can fit a MEDIUM-LARGE frame
  • Bust (armpit to armpit): 23" inches wide
  • Length: 22"- 24" inches long. Please note that one side is shorter than the other but does not interfere with the wear of the blouse.

  • Condition: Generally good vintage condition with a some loose threads and wear. The bottom part has some loose threads but does not affect the structure of the blouse. Please note that this top has some pen marks. This top has been washed and dry-cleaned and I'm not able to get the markings out. The markings are almost faded but still noticeable - refer to the photos. 
  • This vintage Huipil was personally purchased by Angelica, founder of Tesoros Maya from Juana. This Huipil was ethically sourced and the artisan was paid fair price.

Please note: The entire piece is genuine hand woven and hand embroidered. 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. It is a genuine antique and therefore shows some signs of age and loose thread but has no holes or repairs and is in remarkably good condition considering it's age.

CARE:

  • This Huipil was 100% handmade from beginning to end; therefore naturally there will be some imperfections. You could see some loose threads, DO NOT pull just snip with scissors.
  • For a better care, we recommend hand wash
  • Dry flat
