Sacapulas, Quiché
Linguistic Community – Sakapulteko

This garment is made with three cloth panels sewn together by hand. The semicircular neckline is hand embroidered with silk threads as are the figures around it. The red, yellow, and green supplementary weft brocades stand out, among which there are chevrons and other characteristic geometrical designs. This is considered a historical garment because it is no longer worn by the community’s women.
