Guatemalan huipiles are world-renowned not only for their breath-taking vivid colors, but also for the refined patterns enclosing powerful ancient symbols that the Mayans developed to portray their vision of the human and spiritual world.
The diamond is one of these symbols. It represents the cosmos and its invisible doors, crossed by the gods to roam the realms.
However, the diamond shape has also a funnier interpretation, according to which it symbolises... the traditional plate used to serve tamales!
Our kaleidoscopic and unique fabrics do have an ever-surprising story: enjoy discovering more about the Guatemalan huipil by checking out these crafts!
