Chenalho Huipil

This huipil was purchased from a Tzotzil Maya woman in the region of Chenalho Chiapas Mexico in August 2007. The black designs are embroidered on the cotton fabric. A few years ago, these designs would have been red, but many Maya women now prefer darker colors for their clothing. The designs are accented with bright metallic threads
