Woman's huipil measuring approx. 28 inches wide and 28 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 fine geometric 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. Two of the lower edges are selvage-finished and two have 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: varies from 28 to 30 inches wide, 28 inches shoulder to hem, more or less; this huipil is somewhat irregular in its dimensions
Condition: Very Good, lightly used, some slight soil is possible; some irregularity in the dimensions has already been noted. This huipil is finely and tightly woven.
