Rare in color (white) and stunning in detail with hand-embroidery, this vintage huipil (traditional Mayan blouse) is originally from Patzún, Guatemala.

This top features hand embroidered flowers and birds underneath the collar on both the front and back in a variety of colors; typical of this region. The base of this top is white with multi-color stripes, stunning!
