One beautiful, big and heavy panelled Huipil hand embroidered on both sides. This village is located in the high lands of Huehuetenango and the climate tends to be very cold. So this is the reason why the Huipiles are so heavy; to maintain the warmness of the body. This piece shows stars, flowers and geometrical designs as main patterns. The round neckline is cut out and decorated with different satin fabric and cord decoration. All the colours are chemical dyes. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping!
