TYPICAL COSTUME OF ACAPULCO, GUERRERO

The costumes used in this region come in a really huge variety, but the one named "acateca" is the most
popular and well known in the area.
The "acateca" consists of two parts:
The "teconceutl", which is the first piece, has a skirt (or similar) knitted with cotton yarn, dyed blue or black,
with horizontal bands that have a lighter color, which are embroidered with multicolored silk or stamens of
many important national emblems, like birds, deer, flowers in a cheerful and colorful polychrome representing
the flora and fauna of the region. On the other hand, the color of the skirt represents the beauty of the night.
The second piece is the "huipil", which is kind of a long and loose square blouse. Always colored white, made
of silk fabric and embroidered around the neck and shoulders. Just like in the skirts.
When putting on the huipil, the Mexican Indian women roll it up in the waist and fasten it with a knot in their
back, then placing a "Olinal Jcara" (small earthen pot), in which they can hold their money, handkerchiefs,
food, fruits, etc.. With this costume they also use the famous Chilapa shawl, made with the same material and
the embroidered of the skirt.
As footwear, they use heeled sandals or shoes, so that when they're dancing the typical tap dance, the sound
has a better and bigger impact.

For men, the costume consists of trousers made of a wide blanket crossed in the front and tied with tape, also
with a blanket around his waist and a front pocket on the right side. They wear shoes or sandals.
