The huipil is a traditional female blouse worn across the Mesoamerican region. This loose fitting tunic has been worn since pre-Columbian times, 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 vintage, one-of-a-kind piece is a fragment of huipil, used to wrap around the base of a candle for safe carrying during ceremonies.

The woven textile is carefully applied to a flax linen substrate, which provides a border between the textile and frame. This piece is available in our lucite frame. Our signature gold St. Frank plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of each piece. Framed dimensions of this piece are 13.75" W x 14" H.
