There are no two huipiles exactly alike. In Guatemala, weaving is an integral part of a Maya womans daily life & is an important responsibility that is passed on from generation to generation. Mayans have been weaving for over 2,000 years. Although the textiles have evolved and there have been changes in types of threads, dyes, and designs over the centuries, the basic back strap loom has changed very little.

Many types of fabric are handwoven on these looms, and every woman makes her own unique huipil, the traditional blouse still worn in these regions. The design of the huipil expresses cultural identity, role in society, and personal aesthetic. Handwoven, one of a kind, one size fits all. White and Maroon with hand emboridered roosters and birds.
