Long Huipil de Telar
Traditional Long Huipil Made of Telar de Cintura 100% Handmade in Oaxaca, Mexico.
Traditionally, huipiles are a loose-fitting tunic with a hole in the head, that are joined at the sides. They are the most used garment in indigenous communities across Mexico and Central America and are used for various occasions, from casual wear to the most elegant ones.
With intricate floral and geometrical designs, they will surely catch all eyes. Adorned by crocheted details on the bottom. These unique designs are woven by a technique called “telar de cintura,” or backstrap loom, which consist on weaving threads on a loom with a fixed anchorage at the belt of the weaver. Only one of these handwoven hupiles can take over a month to make.
