The region of the highlands of Chiapas, Mexico is a Mayan textile Mecca. Many indigenous communities dot the mountainous hillsides where women there have created incredibly beautiful, diverse, and complex traditional garments for generations. The blouses, called huipils, are most often hand woven on back strap looms and typically embroidered with designs unique to the community of its origin. This huipil is a vintage piece from Chenalho, Chiapas and measures 29" in width and 19" in length. Made with an old style synthetic thread which looks and feels like cotton, it features a loop raised embroidery stitch. Best worn as a crop top with jeans or skirt.
