Vintage Huipil Pillow No. 1

This expressive pillow is handmade from indigenous Maya Guatemalan textiles. The Huipil, or blouse, and the Corte, or skirt are elements of the traditional female costume worn across Guatemala. This loose fitting tunic has been worn for generations and remains the most common garment worn by indigenous females today. Huipil are created on backstrap looms and decorated with woven designs. Many weavers also incorporate intricate traditional motifs within their weaving. This vintage pillow is constructed from an embroidered piece of a huipil and indigo from a vintage Corte.
