Vintage Embroidered Dark Blue, Birds & Animals Guatemalan Huipil
This is a gorgeous, old huipil, or over blouse, woven and worn by a Mayan woman in Guatemala. The lovely dark navy blue blouse is complimented by the brightly colored embroidered birds, animals and symbols all over 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.
The size is small to medium. It is short but wide. It is basically a square shape so it is not fitted and VERY comfortable. This one is closed on the sides so it can either be worn over another top or worn alone.
