Huipil (pronounced wee-peel) is an embroidered blouse worn by indigenous women in Guatemala. Handwoven on back-strap looms using timeless techniques passed down for generations. A single single garment can take anywhere from one to six months to complete, but the end result is a one-of-a-kind work of art. This brief video showcases the technique used to create these vibrant textiles. Learn about the Alma Guatemalan story in the Designer section in our website.
