This darling Guatemalan Huipil features colorful embroidery in Scarlet Red stripes as the base, with multi-colored soft stitched details. Hand-woven on a back-strap loom, this soft Huipil is originally from Colotenango, Guatemala.
Colotenango tops are known to be short, relatively wide and worn hanging loose outside the corte (traditional Mayan skirt). The brocade often includes small, multi-colored diamonds. This scarlet red almost burgundy base fabric is called "aleman" and is prized for its softness and drape.
This top will add a geometric and flashy style to your wardrobe. 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 stylish self.
