A Huipil is a woven blouse worn by indigenous Mayan women in regions of Guatemala and Mexico. They are generally made from one, two, or three panels of either a hand woven or machine woven textile. Different regional areas are differentiated by unique colors, patterns, and designs. My favorite are the huipiles from Chichicastenango Guatemala.
