PROVENANCE

The huipil is a traditional female blouse worn across the Mesoamerican region. This loose fitting tunic has been worn since pre-Columbian times, and remains the most common garment worn by indigenous Mesoamerican females today, particularly the Mayas in Guatemala. Huipil are created on a backstrap loom and heavily decorated with woven designs. Many weavers also incorporate intricate embroidery patterns within their weaving. This vintage, limited edition piece, woven in the huipil style, was used for ceremonial purposes.
