This box is created by woodwork artisans in the Philippines with our Huipil fabric by the yard, inspired by our iconic St. Frank Guatemalan textile. The Huipil, or blouse, is a traditional female costume worn across the Mesoamerican region. This loose fitting tunic has been worn since before the arrival of the Spanish to the Americas, and remains the most common garment worn by indigenous Mesoamerican females today, particularly the Mayas in Guatemala. Huipil are created on a backstrap loom and heavily decorated with woven designs. Many weavers also incorporate intricate embroidery patterns within their weaving. The piece that inspired this fabric was used to wrap around the base of a candle for safe carrying during ceremonies.
