Embroidered Huipil: Chajul
Original embroidered huipil from the Maya village Chajul in the Ixil region of 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 birds and geometric patterns are traditional to this area making for a unique textile to work with. Approx dimensions 25" x 27" but the embellishment does not make up the entire area. When seams are opened, full material doubles in length with a cutout for head hole.
