*"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.
