Vintage Guatemalan Zigzag Huipil

100.00 AUD

I wish I could say I sourced this vintage, handwoven huipil from Guatemala. Alas, I haven’t yet been there. But for the past couple of years since I purchased this piece from the sweetest Guatemalan man at a Sydney vintage market, the few times I’ve worn her have immediately transported me to that colourful, mysterious country. I love the intricate woven zigzag motif on this piece, which looks just as good on the wall as it does on your body, and the tactile feel of the red cotton. Truly one-of-a-kind… and looks all kinds of amazing with a pair of white lace flares.


Condition: Excellent; very slightly aged fabric due to the vintage nature of the item. Part of the individuality and charm of this unique piece.
Material: Thick cotton with wool embroidery. Handwoven in Guatemala.
Size: S. Length 65cm; width 57cm.

Pieces featured in Nina’s Bazaar are vintage, pre-loved or handmade one-offs so there may be imperfections which add to the character of each piece.
