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.
measures 22 inches long and 30 inches across.
Please note the considerable fading in the top half of the garment.
These are great year round. In the winter I wear them over a light sweater and they are super cozy.
