San Pedro Sacatepéquez, Guatemala

The Tactic style huipil, Alta Verapaz, is used in San Pedro Sacatepéquez, Guatemala. This huipil is quite an example of various weaving techniques and decorations in which the supplementary weft brocade technique and geometric and zoomorphic designs stand out. The union of the canvases has hand embroidery with lace stitch, and velvet on the square neck. In the lateral canvases, the technique known as honeycomb is used, which consists of fold making to adjust the huipil, reducing its width.
