The brand-name on the label is Artesania Pop Wuh. I wondered whether this was anything to do with the Popol Vuh, a Mayan creation story from what is now Guatemala.

And indeed, when I searched for "Artesania Pop Wuh", I did find this image on Pinterest (apparently copied from Ruby Lane), showing a purple Pop Wuh waistcoat tagged as from Guatemala.
