Woman's huipil measuring 31 inches wide and 23-24 inches long
This post-2000 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is cotton, indigo blue and green with colored stripes. The geometric and animal designs were added during the weaving process using the technique of supplemental-weft brocading. They were made using cotton and polished cotton threads. It consists of two panels, seemed down the center. Two lower edges are selvage-finished and two have short cut warp fringe. 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: 31 inches wide, 23-24 inches shoulder to hem front and back.
Condition: Excellent, lightly used, some very slight soil is possible. Some variation in the lengths of the panels is shown in the photos.
