the huipil

The huipil is a traditional garment from Central America and Mexico. 


It is a kind of chasuble worn by women, for example Mayan women in Guatemala; it is adorned with shimmering embroidery which differs from one village to another. 


Unique to each village, they are adorned with many patterns, shapes and symbols. The term huipile comes from the Mayan word huipilli, which means “my blanket”. 


They are considered the most attractive costumes in Central America, due to the mixture of pre-Columbian past with religious and artistic details, and Hispanic influence.
