This tunic style blouse is traditionally woven traditionally on a back-strap loom by our female artisan partner Maria and worn by her! Please purchase to preserve, not for a huipil bag.
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 accessories. * Similar to image

María lives and creates her magnificent handicrafts in San Antonio Palopó with a group of women weavers. To reach a larger market, the women travel everyday by public transportation to get to Panajachel to sell her handmade items by foot. Without a stand or locale, María carries most of her items on her head and walks the streets looking for potential shoppers. Working 7-days a week, María is extremely innovative and eager to discuss exclusive designs and customizable products for new customers.
