Doña Elena, Doña Juana and Helencita are our favorite vendors to visit at the Panajachel market. Their families have been selling at this market for close to 20 years and they have the most incredible collection of huipiles from their village Patzún. These huipiles are most easily identified by their gorgeous embroidered flowers at the bust with a maroon striping woven body to follow. All of the Patzún textiles we use are sustainably sourced from Dona Elena and your purchase supports this hard-working female artisan family.
