Product Description

Young Woman's huipil measuring approximately 26 inches wide and 20 inches long
This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is reddish brown-colored cotton. The small 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, seemed using a fancy randa stitch. All of the lower edges are selvage-finished, though some are somewhat ragged from the manner in which they were removed from the loom. The adornment around the head-hole the traditional Chichicastenango sun design. The side stitching (which made the huipil into a finished garment to be used) is still present.

Measurements: approximately 26 inches wide and about 20 inches shoulder to hem; the lenghts are somewhat uneven, as can be seen in the photo.

Condition: Very Good, lightly used, some very light soil and loose threads possible.
