Maya Huipiles: The most important part of the Maya woman's costume is the huipil or the blouse. The weave, design and style of each huipil is indicative of the village it is from.
Maya Cortes: The Maya woman's skirt (refrajo) is commonly referred to as a corte. Because most cortes are simply large, flat pieces of fabric, they are commonly used for many different projects such as; clothing, curtains, upholstery, etc.
Cintas & Fajas: Both are commonly referred to as sashes. They are usually back-strap woven and most are village specific. The primary use of the cinta is as a hair ribbon. The faja is actually a belt, worn wrapped, usually several times around the waist, securing the wrap-style skirt.
