Mexican hand crafted Huipils

A display of colorful huipils (pronounced wee-peel) for sale in the laundromat this December. A huipil is a traditional loose fitted tonic that originated in Mexico. Just like each region in Mexico has their own dialect and artistic flare, most huipils are designed with colorful flowers and ribbons to illustrate Mexico's rich culture. Huipils can be accompanied with a skirt for any occasion, and are famously worn by Frida Kahlo, the famous Mexican artist, which she considered it to be her signature outfit. Any of the huipils on display are for sale for $150, ask the attendants.
