Guatemalan huipil – beautiful blouse of indigenous ladies
In Latin America, particularly in Guatemala, the traditional craft of weaving is rather highly developed. And one of the most beautiful, ornate, and symbolic hand-woven garments is the huipil, a traditional blouse or tunic adorned with local patterns. These textiles are a great part of Guatemalan folk culture and the diversity of their designs will amaze you. Especially when you realize that most of the patterns originate from the Aztec and Mayan civilizations.
