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, leather patches, threaded fringes, and much more.
The shawls are all one-size. This Huipil Shawl has buttons of ceramic sculpture in the front surrounded by leather patches giving it an extra distinct look.
This huipil is originally from the town of Nahuala in Chimaltenango.
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.
