Juana Velvet Emboidered Top
The Huipile is a testimony of the highest Mayan weaving art.
Huipiles are usually made of two or three layers of fabric connected with decorative embroidery.
Flower motifs are embroidered by hand.
A woman has only a very limited number of Huipiles throughout her life. A well woven Huipile can be worn for 20 to 30 years. Then, when the Huipile can no longer be worn, it is divided into small pieces of cloth and used as a carpet or sown into a quilt.
Made in Mexico 100% Cotton Velvet
Each piece is one-of-a-kind in variations in the design/color.
Dry Clean recommended.
