The Huipil, or blouse, is a traditional female costume worn across the Mesoamerican region. This loose fitting tunic has been worn since before the arrival of the Spanish to the Americas, and remains the most common garment worn by indigenous Mesoamerican females today, particularly the Mayas in Guatemala. Huipil are created on a backstrap loom and heavily decorated with woven designs. Many weavers also incorporate intricate embroidery patterns within their weaving. This St. Frank vintage piece is a fragment of a ceremonial huipil worn by an infant.

St. Frank's signature gold plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of the piece. Framed dimensions of this piece are 15" W x 15.25" H.
