Detail with hand-embroidery, this youth vintage Huipil (traditional blouse) was personally purchased from Elena and her family in Panajachel, Guatemala.
This particular Huipil is a ‘poncho’ style blouse that is normally worn with a tank-top underneath, tucked in or cinched in by a belt.
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.
