Mayan blouses or huipils are hand woven on a back strap loom. This one is from the highland village of Nebaj. The color and pattern of huipils are specific to each individual village. Imagine getting up in the morning and putting on exactly what every other women and girl in your community wears. Mayans believe that it is their duty to dress beautifully to compliment the fantastic nature that surrounds them. This piece should be considered art wear.
