    1. Huipil from the Nahuatl word is the most common traditional garment worn by indigenous women from central Mexico to central America. It is a loose-fitting tunic, generally made from two or three pieces of fabric which are then joined together with stitching with an opening for the head and if the sides are sewn, opening for the arms. The length of the huipil can vary from a short blouse-like garment or long enough to reach the floor. They have different purposes as for weeding and even to dress the statues of saints.
    2. This vintage Mexican handwoven Mayan Cape was made on a backstraploom with nice geometric tribal style patterns and hand brocaded right into the cloth by a masterweaving family of Zinacantan, Chiapas.
    3. Zinacantan is one of the meccas of Mayan textiles in Mexico and these pieces are living proof.
