Mayan Patzicia Cardigan: A Fusion of Tradition and Modern Style

This cardigan is a unique piece that bridges the gap between ancient Mayan heritage and contemporary fashion. Crafted from 100% organic cotton, this cardigan is repurposed from an original Mayan top, preserving its cultural significance. Let’s dive into the details:

  • Color: Vibrant red with geometrical patterns in zig zag form, featuring shades of green, white, yellow, red, and purple.
  • Design Elements:
    • Black Silk Fringes: The cardigan boasts delicate black silk fringes at the bottom, adding movement and elegance.
    • Zig Zag Velvet Adornment: A zig zag shape velvet adornment graces the front, paying homage to Mayan motifs.
  • Origin: This cardigan is inspired by the traditional huipil worn by indigenous women in Patzicia, Chimaltenango, a cold region on the highlands of Guatemala. The huipil represents family, community, and the interconnectedness of all living beings.

Styling Looks:

1. Boho Chic:

  • Festival Ready: Pair the Mayan Patzicia Cardigan with distressed denim shorts, a white tank top, and ankle boots. Add chunky silver jewelry for a bohemian vibe.
  • Outdoor Concert: Layer it over a flowy maxi dress or a jumpsuit. The fringes will sway with every step.

2. Artisanal Elegance:

  • Gallery Opening: Wear the cardigan with tailored black pants, a silk blouse, and heeled mules. Let the zig zag pattern steal the show.
  • Cultural Event: Combine it with a long skirt, embroidered sandals, and a wide-brimmed hat. You’ll exude artistic flair.

3. Cozy Comfort:

  • Coffee Shop Vibes: Wrap yourself in the soft organic cotton. Pair it with leggings, a graphic tee, and sneakers.
  • Reading Nook: Snuggle up with a book, wearing this cardigan over your favorite pajamas.

Washing Instructions:

  • Hand Wash Only: Treat this cardigan gently. Hand wash in cold water using mild detergent.
  • Lay Flat to Dry: Avoid wringing or twisting. Lay it flat on a clean towel to dry naturally.

Cultural Significance:

The Mayan Zig Zag Cardigan celebrates the resilience of indigenous cultures. It embodies the spirit of family, community, and the enduring connection to nature. By wearing it, you honor centuries-old traditions and contribute to the preservation of Mayan heritage.

Add this extraordinary piece to your wardrobe and carry a piece of Guatemala’s rich history with you.  


 The Mayan huipil is more than just clothing; it’s a symbol of identity, storytelling, and the continuity of life across generations.
