  • About Huipils

    Huipils are the most significant part of a Mayan woman's costume, and to the knowledgeable observer it identifies a woman's village, social and marital status, religious background, wealth, and individual personality. Three panels make up the Cotzal huipil blouse, featuring alternating geometric bands, interspersed with figures of birds or 4-footed creatures.

    Because these bags are made of several blouses, no two bags are exactly the same. Handmade in Guatemala and fair trade imported.
