Huipil is a generic term for the traditional Maya woman’s blouse. She spends months weaving and/or embroidering these herself, and they may last decades. Each village has its own distinctive colors, symbols and designs. Our tailors and seamstress partners salvage usable portions of these vintage fabrics and make them into a wide range of pouches, wallets, eyeglass holders, and purses
