Vintage Huipil Top - Chajul

$175.00

Handmade in Chajul, El Quiche, Guatemala, this top will add a geometric and flashy style to your wardrobe. Wear it with denim or linen pants for a casual picnic day in the sun, or spice it up with a skirt and boots for a fun night out on the town! Either way you wear it, heads will turn towards your boho-stylish self.

This pre-loved top was hand-woven on a back-strap loom with "Aleman" cotton in a Deep Red color base with black and white stripes. This type of top is one of our most popular garments because of how soft and cool the hand-woven fabric feels.
