    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. The Juchitan People use these Blouses and Nahua Dresses that are Hand Embroidered on a Singer Pedal Machine in front and back on a lovely satin cloth known as 'piel de durazno' cloth. Intact with original cotton lining.
    3. Both Tehuana and Juchitan are famous for the beloved Frida Kahlo, who was known to dress in these blouses on a regular basis.
