Huipils

Huipil [Wee-peel] is a Spanish term for a Maya woman's traditional blouse. It is the most personal, communicative and significant part of her traje or costume, and the grandest form of the culture's weaving heritage. It is used to identify the specific village of the wearer, her social and marital status, religious background and beliefs, wealth, authority and individual personality.
