Huipiles, the traditional Mayan blouse is usually sewn from two or three sections of hand woven cloth. The sides are then stitched up leaving armholes. Embroidery tells a lot about the individual. Usually, the more prominent the woman the more decorative the embroidery. Today, foot looms from the Totonicapan area are very popular. Even machine made cloth is beginning to make an appearance in indigenous villages.
