Blouse made of a sheer white fabric. The neck is lined with gold applique, a gold fabric flower and, gold and white lace. Below, the fabric is ruched, creating a tight fit, which becomes looser towards the hem. The front of the body is embroidered with rows of varying-sizes of gold zigzags, with a larger band that extends around the garment. Both the neck and sleeves are lined with twisted gold embroidery with brown ribbon woven through, which has ends for tying. The bottom hem is unfinished.

History Of Use

These blouses were bought from Mayan-speaking women in the rural town of Aguacatenango. The town is known for red/orange huipiles, however regardless of tradition and governmental intervention in folkloric textiles in Chiapas, these more ‘western’ looking lace blouses are now worn by the women in Aguacatenango.
