Handmade in Guatemala
A huipil (pronounced wee-peel) is the embroidered blouse worn by indigenous women in Guatemala. Women in Guatemala pair their Huipil with a traditional long fabric skirt [corte]. These skirts are made from large pieces of fabric usually woven on a foot loom that they then tie around their waste and secure with a wrapped belt.
Every region, town and village in Guatemala can be defined by their unique Huipil. Each embroidered pattern is geographically specific and hand-woven with cultural significance. Huipiles are still widely worn by Maya in Guatemala
