Guatemalan Huipil from Almolonga


Shipping to United States: $8.70

This gorgeous huipil is from the town of Almolonga. It is 34-inches wide and 37-inches from the shoulder to the hem. The design is 18-inches long. It is vintage but it is amazingly beautiful. It is definitely a huipil to wear and enjoy. It was handwoven on a back strap loom. It is a wonderful example of the traditional design found in Almolonga. It is actually two panels sewn together with a traditional “randa.” It is a beautiful dusty pink.

A huipil is a Mayan blouse. Women weave the blouses by hand. Traditionally, each village or town has had its own design. That is not to say that everyone is exactly alike, however. Each woman adds something of her personality or story to each one. The last picture is of me modeling the huipil. Of course, Angus had to get his picture taken, too.

All the fabrics on this site are 100% cotton hand-dyed and hand-woven in Guatemala. The regular fabric is 36 inches wide. The fabric is not cut until you buy it. When you order multiple yards, you'll receive your fabric in a continuous piece.

Since these fabrics are hand woven there might be slight imperfections. These are characteristics that make the fabric stand out from machine made fabrics.

The corte pieces are different widths. The width of each one is in the description.

Fabrics should be prewashed before sewing with them. Edges of the fabric should be zigzagged to prevent fraying. Please follow the washing instructions you receive with your fabric. Some fabrics should be washed in cold water with a mild detergent. Others require Retayne. I include detailed instructions on how to use Retayne.

Retayne can be ordered on-line from any number of sites such as Joanne’s or Amazon.
