Learn about Huipil, we love it

My love affair for huipiles started from when I was a child in Mexico. Seeing my mom wear these colorful blouses she was so fond of made me fall in love with their story.
⁠⠀
When I started traveling on my own, I began to learn about their origins and their history. I was hooked!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Known for its intricate patterns, uniqueness and vibrant colors, the huipil (pronounced wee-peel) is an embroidered blouse worn by indigenous women in Mexico and Guatemala. Each one can take anywhere from one to six months to complete and tells a story tradition, beliefs, family history and so much more. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We repurpose huipiles into #oneofakind bags and pillows to create unique items that can't ever be replicated. ⁠⠀
