This is a stunning huipil/blouse from Chajul Guatemala. This is a very fine example with more extensive hand embroidery than most. This base fabric is called "aleman" and is prized for its softness and drape. It is a rayon cotton mix and it is like nothing I've ever felt. Super soft and supple yet substantial. A beautiful blue color.
measures 22 inches long and 25 inches across.
These are great year round. In the winter I wear them over a light sweater and they are cozy.
