Product Details

The Jaspe with Huipil apron takes our Classic Jaspe apron and embellishes the bodice with a swath of lovely contrasting/coordinating huipil** embroidery. Blue Jaspe with Nahualá Huipil features our blue jaspe fabric with a panel of huipil embroidery from Nahualá in the Central Highlands of Guatemala. Nahualá most often incorporates stylized animals and figures or geometrics in colored thread on a dark or white background. Due to the number of variations in jaspe* and huipil** fabrics available, please choose your basic color palette preference and allow us to choose the fabric. The exact fabrics you see here may not be available.

Each apron has a convenient double pocket and adjustable neck strap ensuring that one size fits most! Our aprons make lovely gifts for the host or hostess and are, of course, wonderful to gift to yourself!

*Jaspe (pronounced “haspeh”) is a traditional Guatemalan cotton/cotton-blend/rayon textile that is woven on a peddle-loom. The fabric is traditionally used for women’s skirts. Jaspe patterns are created by a series of faint stripes formed by the arrangement of light, medium, and dark warp threads or by twisting together 2 threads of different colors. The fabric often has ikat designs. Our upcycled fabrics will not run or bleed in the wash.

*"Huipil" (pronounced “wheepeel”) is the traditional Guatemalan women's blouse. The basic fabric is usually hand-woven on a back-strap loom then embellished with hand or machine embroidery. Every region and/or village has specific fabric and embroidery designs plus what each woman adds of her own personal style.
