This huipil top is handmade with cotton in the Chajul region of Guatemala. It was made in the traditional method of backstrap loom-weaving with the reoccurring 'rhombus' pattern that symbolized the mayan rugs on which the women sit while they weave. The process is labour intensive, taking approximately 2 months to manufacture. The design features birds and diamonds; the embroidered colorful birds represent Mayans deep connection with nature and the beautiful wildlife that lives in the mountains surrounding their villages.
