This amazing Mayan blouse (Huipil) has a traditional intricate brocade work featuring several different bird, tree of life, and plant designs found in San Pedro Sacatepequez, Guatemala
Hand-woven on a back-strap loom, this top was handcrafted with two panels, each is finely brocaded with small zoomorphic and geometrical patterns of deer on the upper part of the huipil. Deer are considered a symbol of strong, stable, regal energy by the Maya. They represent all of the animal kingdom. Deer also encompass the four levels of being: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. The energies of the deer also signify the binding forces between an individual and their family.
When you buy a Huipil, you are truly wearing Guatemalan history and an one-of-a-kind, masterpiece!

This particular huipil is a ‘poncho’ style blouse that is normally worn tucked in or cinched in by a thick belt. This particular square huipil has not been sewn up on either side, making it ideal to wear over a tank top.
Not suitable for machine dryers, dry on a flat surface
To ensure this blouse has a long life, we recommend washing it by hand or on a delicate spin cycle only
This traditional blouse was 100% handmade from beginning to end; therefore, naturally, there will be some imperfections
Thank you for such a high-quality handmade huipil! Feels like a personal treasure in this world of corporate/factory made products.
I love the hoodie. It is soft and the embroidery is wonderful. This is my second order from Tesoros Maya. Both times I experienced an unusual attention to detail. When the packages arrived, they were like gifts.There were hand written notes and surprises. I will definitely order again.
The pictures on the website do not do this product justice. In person the hair wrap has so many beautiful details. The colors are vibrant and it is long enough for those with long, medium or short hair. Simple instructions are provided but I am excited to learn the different ways to use it in my hair. I have already been inspired to wear this as a necklace and belt. I can't wait to get more!
Loved it. Wish there was another choice w brighter colors but this one is great.
Very well made. Cute idea
