Vintage Multi-Color on Blue Stripes Guatemalan Huipil, Closed Sides


$ 175.00

This is a lovely, old huipil, or over blouse, woven and worn by a Mayan woman in Guatemala. The bright color combination of various Mayan symbols is done on top of blue and white and red stripes. It's not fitted, so it is perfect for wearing with skinny jeans or with a belt over a full skirt. Huipils are woven as two separate strips on a backstrap loom, then made into blouses by sewing the two pieces down the center. This is a colorful and exuberant huipil and the color and sleeves are trimmed withzig-zagging green velvet. 

The size is medium-medium large. 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.
