"Gabrielle" Fitted Guatemalan Blouse in Blue and Orange

Erick

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 when paired with jeans and booties! 

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.
