This is a spectacular, authentic Huipil from Chajul, Quiche Guatemala.
Vintage and hand-woven on a back-strap loom with "Aleman" soft Purple base. It is one of our most popular garments because of how soft and cool the hand-woven fabric feels.
This particular blouse has NOT been tailored in the arms, so you'll see some loose ends. This stunning Huipil has a woven-embroidered Mayan design in front and back. Great piece to add to your wardrobe or use as an art-wall hanging.**Flat Measurements**
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.
Shop with a purpose: Your purchase helps preserve our commitment to ethical practices and helps employ the indigenous artisan weaver that handmade this Huipil.
