Embroidered Huipil: San Juan Sacatepequez
Original embroidered huipil from the Maya village of San Juan Sacatepequez, Guatemala. Woven by indigenous women on a traditional back-strap loom.
Huipil: A huipil is a simple shaped blouse with impeccable hand-embroidered detailing. Huipiles are woven in panels on a backstrap loom by a female artisan. Every Maya village has their own unique signature represented in their garments.
Style: Depictions of thick embroidered animals and brightly-colored striping are traditional to this area making for a vibrant textile to work with. Approx dimensions 41" x 25" but the embroidery does not make up the entire area.
Disclaimer: Each blouse is used, vintage and has imperfections. Every Hiptipico huipil is handmade by Maya artisans which produces one-of-a-kind variations. This makes them uniquely charming and distinct from factory-made clothing.
