Vintage Pink Traditional Mayan Huipil: A Tapestry of Heritage


Our Vintage Pink Huipil, handcrafted in the Alta Verapaz region of Guatemala, is a testament to the enduring artistry of Mayan weavers. Here’s what makes it truly remarkable:

  • Color Palette:
    • Pink Base: The soft pink hue evokes femininity, energy, and dawn—the promise of a new day.
    • Multicolor Hand Embroidery: Around the neckline, intricate hand-embroidered motifs come alive. The flowers, and other geometric symbols dance in vibrant threads.


  • Flowers: Represent growth, beauty, and the cyclical nature of life.
  • Fresh Look: The pink hue adds a contemporary twist to the traditional design, making it perfect for modern wear.

Styling Tips:

1. Boho Chic:

  • Artisan Market: Pair the Vintage Pink Huipil with denim shorts, woven sandals, and chunky silver jewelry. Let the vibrant embroidery steal the show.
  • Outdoor Concert: Wear it over a flowy maxi skirt or wide-leg pants. The beaded neckline adds a touch of sophistication.

2. Cultural Fusion:

  • Mayan Inspired: Combine it with a wrap skirt or harem pants. Celebrate the rich heritage of Cobán.
  • Travel Adventure: Pack it for your next journey. Layer it over a swimsuit or wear it as a lightweight cover-up.

Care Instructions:

  • Gentle Care: Hand wash the huipil in cold water using mild detergent.
  • Lay Flat to Dry: Avoid wringing or twisting. Lay it flat on a clean towel to dry naturally.

Importance of Repurposed Tops:

Wearing repurposed clothing is not only fashionable but also environmentally responsible. By choosing pieces like this Vintage Pink Huipil, you:

  • Reduce Waste: Repurposing extends the life of textiles, reducing the need for new production.
  • Preserve Culture: Each embroidered motif carries centuries-old symbolism, connecting you to the Mayan legacy.
  • Support Artisans: When you wear repurposed tops, you support local artisans and their craft.

Embrace the beauty of tradition, wear it proudly, and be part of the sustainable fashion movement.
