"Beatriz" Guatemalan Blouse in Red and Black, Size Medium/Large


Hand-loomed and hand-embroidered "huipil" or blouse from Guatemala. This gorgeous blouse has its origins in Mayan culture, but it couldn't be more chic or modern for today's woman! "Beatriz"  style has a loose, flattering shape and extended length to make it more versatile!

Let your outfit tell a story.... Based on ancient Mayan spinning and dyeing techniques, Guatemalan textiles are an enduring link to a rich cultural past. Weavers today (mostly women) still derive colors for their threads from vegetable and mineral substances. The Mayan loom - a back strap loom- is still the method of weaving used today.
