What Are Huipiles?
A huipil is a traditional garment worn by Indigenous Mayan women throughout Central America. In Guatemala, huipil blouses are typically paired with a skirt called a corte.
The blouses are traditionally woven on backstrap looms and have long been an important part of cultural and social identity. Women wear more casual huipiles for day-to-day living, while the more ornate and intricate huipils are reserved for special occasions like weddings and other celebrations or ceremonies. Patterns, colors and styles of hupiles vary from region-to-region, so huipiles can be viewed as an emblem of one's community.
