Doll Blouses --- Traditional Mayan Huipils   These are hand-made and hand-woven blouses designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl.  Each piece is unique.   Thus colors, weaving, embroidery patterns, and size will vary and supplies of some huipils may be limited.  Please check for availability.  The huipils (blouses) are primarily hand-woven to size on a back-strap loom or pieced together from older hand-woven huipils.  We guarantee satisfaction.
