"Evelyn" Loose Fit, Guatemalan Blouse/ Tunic, White on White

Erick

Hand-loomed and hand-embroidered "huipil" (or blouse) from Guatemala. With intricate white on white embroidery, the "Evelyn" has a sophisticated look that can go from day to evening.  The shape of this particular blouse ~ loose fit, open at the sides - is the original style of the authentic Guatemalan huipil. Mayan women would traditionally wear this with a sash and tuck it into their skirts, but we think it is particularly chic when worn loose and flowing with just a camisole underneath!

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.
