Huipil (pronounced wee-peel) is the Spanish word for the traditional blouses worn by Mayan women for centuries. They are still prominent in Guatemalan and a few other Latin American cultures today. The huipil is the most prevalent part of a woman’s traditional dress and is of great cultural significance to the Mayans. The weave or design of each huipil can identify the village she is from and is a work of art.
Soltera Leather began as a way to create opportunity for single mothers in Guatemala, providing livable wages, health benefits, and flexible working schedules to care for their families.
Made by hand in Guatemala from vegetable-tanned leather and vintage fabric.

Care: Leather is tanned naturally, without using chemicals to seal the material, it ages beautifully over time with wear and use. For the huipil, use a damp cloth and spot clean, dabbing gently.
