Vintage Blue Striped Guatemalan Huipil, Closed Sides


$ 165.00

This is a pretty, vintage huipil, or over blouse, woven and worn by a Mayan woman in Guatemala. The lovely dark blue weaving is complimented by the stripes and fringed hem. The brightly colored embroidered zigzags and symbols cover the top 2/3s of the huipil.  The colors combine beautifully. It's not fitted so it is perfect for wearing with skinny jeans or with a belt over a full skirt. These are woven as two separate strips on a backstrap loom, then made into blouses with the embroidery around the neck and the stitching down the center. This one is dark blue with stripes in the background and red and purple flowers and a crocheted neckline. 

The size is medium. Huipils are basically a square shape so they are not fitted and VERY comfortable. This one is closed on the sides so it can either be worn over another top or worn alone.
