Olive + Jewel Chichi vintage huipil

This is the huipil, the traditional top still worn by many rural Guatemalan women. Each huipil is unique to its region of origin and the weaver is telling a story through their embroidery. This specific piece comes from Chichicastanengo. The huipils that we source were masterfully created on a backstrap loom, there is a market for used huipils because like any fashion item, the wearer may tire of her huipil and want to sell it to buy the supplies to make two or three more. All of our huipils have been ethically sourced from Panajachel or Chichi. They are beautiful as repurposed items (hello crafters!), worn as a unique poncho, or even hung as a piece of art in your home.
