Beautiful woven pattern on huipil from Chichicastenango (Guatemala). Huipil is the traditional blouse worn in several countries of American continent: Guatemala, Mexico, etc. This blouse or tunic originates from Maya culture.
The patterns on huipiles are woven, not embroidered. On this particular huipil, only the neckline is adorned with embroidery – the shape of decorations look like the sun rays.
