Woman's huipil measuring approximately 34 inches wide, 26 inches long
This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is black-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. All of the lower edges are selvage-finished, though there is some pulling of the threads in the lower areas from the manner in which they were removed from the loom. 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) has been removed.
Measurements: approximately 34 inches wide and 26 inches shoulder to hem; the lengths are slightly uneven as can be seen in the photo
Condition: Very Good, lightly used, some very light soil, dust and loose threads possible.
