This is a stunning huipil/blouse from Zacualpa, Guatemala. I love the bold and powerful design. Zacualpa daily huipil. It was hand woven on a back strap loom in two balanced panels joined by hand embroidered decorative seams. The supplementary brocade across the shoulders features the “soumak” weaving technique, which produces a subtle herringbone pattern unique to Zacualpa. The arm holes have the “feathers” typical of Zacualpa huipils. This classic example is in excellent condition.
measures 24 inches long and 26 inches across.
These are great year round. In the winter I wear them over a light sweater and they are super cozy.

This is huipil made from an older pre 1980s Chichicastenango huipil and natural silk velvet. Absolutely phenomenal color way! The huipil is a now rare wool embroidered piece. These are no longer produced in this region.

The cost of the dress is just enough to cover the materials, the labor that went into it and the fees to sell it.
This poncho come from the Highlands of Chiapas, a village called San Andres Larrainzar. Not a traditional garment but a completely fabulous modern design using the traditional San Andres Larrainzar style of weaving. Wonderful color way.
