Huipiles from Coban are usually white with colorful embroidery around the collar. Sometimes the base is a commercially-made blouse (out of eyelet, for example), but sometimes it is one of these spectacular white-on-white woven pieces. If you enlarge the photo below, you'll see that it's a lovely, gauzy huipil with similar motifs as huipiles made in other areas, but in all white.

I really love the simplicity of the all white, and the subtlies in the weaving. This one, with embroidery, is just gorgeous!
