Handmade in Chajul, Quiche Guatemala, 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 boho-stylish self.

This pre-loved top was hand-woven on a back-strap loom with "Aleman" cotton in a Banana Yellow base. Please note that this top is a lot heavier than our traditional Chajul tops that are super soft and light. This top is 100% cotton.
Iconography: This stunning top has a woven-embroidered design of various butterflies and Mayan Peacocks. The Guatemalan people see peacocks as a sign of spirituality. Their noble nature and musical colors will hold special meaning to someone who is in tune with their inner spirit or searching for peace within themselves. Great piece to add to your ethical wardrobe or use as an art-wall hanging!
