The huipil is a traditional female blouse worn across the Mesoamerican region. This loose fitting tunic has been worn since pre-Columbian times, and remains the most common garment worn by indigenous Mesoamerican females today, particularly the Mayas in Guatemala. Huipil are created on a backstrap loom and heavily decorated with woven designs. Many weavers also incorporate intricate embroidery patterns within their weaving. This vintage, one-of-a-kind piece was used for ceremonial purposes.
