Bright Green San Juan Comalapa Mayan Top: A Tapestry of Tradition


Our Bright Green Mayan Top from San Juan Comalapa is a vibrant masterpiece that weaves together ancient motifs and contemporary style. Here are the details that make it truly remarkable:

  • Color Palette:
    • Bright Green Base: The top features a lively bright green hue, reminiscent of lush landscapes.
    • Machine Embroidery: Intricate embroidery in shades of blue, yellow, brown, red, turquoise, and burgundy adorns the fabric. Birds, flowers, plums, pears, strawberries, apples, and grapes come to life through each stitch.
    • Beaded Ornaments: Delicate beads embellish the neckline, adding a touch of elegance.


  • Birds: These embroidered birds symbolize freedom, connection to the spiritual realm, and the harmony between earth and sky.
  • Flowers: Represent growth, beauty, and the cyclical nature of life.
  • Fruits (Strawberries, Apples, Grapes): Signify abundance, nourishment, and the bountiful gifts of nature.

Styling Tips:

1. Boho Chic:

  • Artisan Market: Pair the Mayan Top 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 San Juan Comalapa.
  • 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 top in cold water using mild detergent.
  • Lay Flat to Dry: Avoid wringing or twisting. Lay it flat on a clean towel to dry naturally.

The Importance of Repurposed Tops:

Wearing repurposed clothing is not only fashionable but also environmentally responsible. By choosing pieces like this Mayan Top, 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.

San Juan Comalapa, known as the “Florence of America,” continues to inspire artists and celebrate its rich cultural heritage. 🌺
