San Juan Sacatepéquez

                  

We’re so happy that our textile options from San Juan Sacatepéquez are among our most popular, because we absolutely adore the huipil from this town!  Let us tell you why…

About an hour north of Guatemala City, San Juan Sacatepéquez  is a proper town and not a rural village.  There, the traditional traje (outfit) is sure to catch your eye, as the women match in their yellow huipiles with blue and purple bird designs.  The end effect is the women looking like elegant macaws themselves…

We love to use the huipiles from San Juan Sactepéquez because the upper and lower parts of the same huipil can give us two different textile options for boots!

See how we get both the San Juan Design and San Juan Stripes options?  This way, we are able to utilize as much of each treasured textile pieces as possible, since as you know, they are all made by hand.

We particularly love this town’s huipiles because they are quite similar in color tones.  That’s why we are able to always offer the San Juan Design and San Juan Stripes online for custom-made boots.  We hope that you like these photos of some of our boots made with the huipil from San Juan Sacatepéquez!
