Young Woman's huipil measuring approximately 30 inches wide and 29 inches long
This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is black-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 loose 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) has been removed.
Measurements: approximately 30 inches wide and about 29 inches shoulder to hem.
Condition: Very Good, lightly used, some very light soil and loose threads possible.
