A square of fabric is cut into a blouse known as a huipil by native Mayans. Men wear a plainer huipil with a red or blue sash, but women frequently embroider them in intricate patterns. The gods and the cosmos are depicted in the needlework patterns.
Belize is home to a variety of cultures, but the Mayans were the original inhabitants. Their clothing’s patterns and hues are an homage to local customs. Some people use a tzute, a rectangular piece of fabric draped over the shoulder, as a cloak or a hat for the sun. Men don’t typically wear jewellery, but women do. Morrals are bags that men frequently carry.
