  • Reviews

This unique work of textile art is made entirely by hand, from flattering V-neckline to flared silhouette. The wide colorful collar and cuffs and the eye-catching accents of this Huipil-Embellished Jacket are fashioned from recycled huipils—traditional Mayan blouses with elaborate embroidery. The jacket body, including the knot buttons and loops, is made from recycled skirt fabric from the same Guatemalan village as the huipils. 100% cotton. Made in Guatemala. Relaxed fit. Each will vary.  Sizes, S, M, L, XL.
