Sol Huipil Blouse
This ceremonial blouse was handmade with cotton in the Huehuetenango highland region of Western Guatemala. It is a huipil, a traditional Mayan blouse worn still by the indigenous women of Guatemala and was made in the traditional method of backstrap loom. Huipil-crafting is labour intensive, taking approximately 2 months to manufacture.
