Our Huipil Shawls are all magnificent pieces of wearable art. Each one is different and very unique. This particular collection is very fashionable and will make you stand out in a crowd.
The common denominator between these cape-poncho-style shawls is that they all have the traditional Mayan huipil as a base. The Mayan huipil is a slipover shirt handmade from traditional textiles and embroidery. We have opened the huipil in the front/middle, added some beautiful details of beaded embroidery, jade, ceramic, threaded fringes, and much more.
The shawls are all one-size and they can be adjusted on the shoulders to put it looser or tighter. These two settings give two different looks - both amazing - see photos.
This specific huipil is from the town of Patzún in the region of Chimaltenango. This textile is characterized by floral embroidery. The huipil also has the fabric of a vintage corta (traditional Mayan skirt) sewn together with the huipil textile.
We only buy the finest and most precious textile for these pieces of wearable art. We then combine the textile with our famous ceramic beads, sculptures, and jade.
