'Huipil' (in Quiche 'blouse')

Origin: Guatemala
Weave: Brocade/ brocade technique on the backstrap loom
Duration: 1-2 months
Pattern: ancient Mayan wisdom, transmitted and further developed,
vary from village to village and from weaver to weaver.


*Brooching technique: The patterns are created by incorporating the decorative threads individually into the weft during weaving. And the patterns only emerge through several rows. This is very time-consuming and requires maximum concentration to ultimately arrive at the desired pattern, which the weavers know inside and out. A work of art that is created like a tapestry of a tapestry.

You can look forward to a wonderfully unique piece that cannot be compared to anything else in terms of quality!

The fabrics are pre-washed. Can bleed a little.

CARE:
—————————————————————
Since hand-woven fabrics are simply woven a little looser, it is an advantage to wash them by hand!
I do not accept any guarantee for machine laundry!
But what I can give you as a tip is if you have a washing machine with a hand wash program and wash the vest upside down in a laundry bag and spin it at no more than 400 rpm you will also get a good result. However, matting can still occur!

The fabrics are pre-washed.

All fabrics are unique and I make each item of clothing myself.
MADE IN GERMANY

***As this piece is a handmade vintage piece, slight irregularities and 'blemishes' may occur in the weaving. There may also be areas that were subsequently improved. I see this as part of the beauty of this vintage fabric. You can really see the craftsmanship origins and the history it carries. It is wonderful.
