This lovely Huipil coverall was made with 100% cotton using the backstrap loom weaving technique, meaning a lot of work and tradition. Very light and comfortable. The twist in this item is that the sides were left open to allow its use for the beach (to cover your swimsuit) or with a under tank to wear it as casual outfit.
This piece also has handmade embroidery making it a real piece of art.
The Huipil (pronounced wee-peel) is the most common traditional garment worn by indigenous women from Mexico and Central America. It is a loose-fitting tunic, made from two rectangular pieces of fabric joined together, leaving an opening for the head and the openings for the arms.
The Huipil has been worn since pre-Hispanic times and it remains the most common indigenous garment for women still in use.
