Story

San Pedro Sacatepéquez lies just west of Guatemala City and is known for its dense supplementary brocade on ceremonial over-huipiles. These over-huipiles are made from two panels woven on a back strap loom hand embroidered together. Worn for wedding ceremonies, cofradía rituals and other celebrations.
