Santa Catarina Palopó

Traditionally the huipil was of red background, which was changing in the last decades.

The huipil contains 3 types of elements: figures of animals or plants, geometric patterns that separate the groups of figures and combinations of harmonic colors between the base and the details. These same principles will be those that will be used in the buildings of Santa Catarina.
