Young Girl's huipil measuring approximately 25 inches wide, 18 inches long
This post 1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is dark brown-colored cotton. The geometric designs were added during the weaving process using the technique of supplemental-weft brocading. They were made using mostly cotton threads. It consists of three panels, which have been joined in the areas of the brocading using a decorative randa stitch. Three of the lower edges are selvage-finished, and three have cut warp fringes. The lengths are also somewhat uneven. The adornment around the head-hole the traditional Chichicastenango sun design. The side stitching (which makes the huipil into a finished garment to be used) is still present.
Measurements: approximately 25 inches wide and 18-19 inches shoulder to hem; the lenghts are somewhat uneven
Condition: Very Good, lightly used, some very light soil, dust and loose threads possible.
