Product Description

Woman's huipil measuring 32-34 inches wide and 25-26 inches long
This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is cotton, the blue threads dyed with indigo. The small cat designs were added during the weaving process using the technique of supplemental-weft brocading. They were made using artificial silk (rayon or orlon embroidery floss). It consists of two panels, seemed down the center. All lower edges are selvage-finished, though all have been lightly hemmed for evenness. The adornment around the head- and arm-holes is retained. The side stitching (which made the huipil into a finished garment to be used) has been removed.

Measurements: 32-34 inches wide, 26 inches shoulder to hem in the back, 25 inches shoulder to hem in the front.

Condition: Excellent, lightly used, some very slight soil is possible. This huipil is quite finely and tightly woven.
