Guatemalan Huipiles and Textiles for Sale

In Guatemala in the highlands around Lake Atitlan, the Mayan women usually wear their traje (traditional dress), which consists of a huipil (blouse), corte (skirt), and faja (belt).  Here are some lovingly-used traditional pieces that I have for sale. The overall photos below usually show the front and the decorated part of the back of the huipil.  When the huipiles are actually in use, they are sewn up the sides to create a more fitted garment with an armhole.  These huipiles have been unstitched, and laid out flat.
