This huipil garment was made in Guatemala .The fabric is thick and it seems to be a cotton blend or polyester material, which is typical of the blouses worn as everyday wear. In this case, huipil refers to the square cut of the garment which is traditional in Mayan textiles from the highlands of Central America and southern Mexico.The embroidery around the neckline features beautiful intricate designs of roses, rosebuds and leaves and features quetzal, the national bird of Guatemala. The sleeves themselves also feature an embroidered rose design. The huipil is in used condition, there are a couple of spots on it (see third picture) and there are still some pen marking around the embroidery (used as a guide to hand stitch and embroider the design). This would make a beautiful addition to any wardrobe or it can be hung and displayed as home decor (which I do!).
