This post-1990 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a treadle-type Spanish floor loom. It is of mixed cotton and synthetic threads, and of very traditional geometric designs. The designs were all added during the weaving process using supplemental weft brocading, and they are very nicely done. It consists of three panels, seemed together using a traditional flat hand stitch. The rows of designs in the three panels match quite well. The fancy collar decoration was added using maching embroidery. All of the lower panel edges are hemmed. Original adornment around the head-hole is retained. The stitching under the arm-holes, which makes this a usable garment, has been removed. Photos are taken of both sides, since the designs may be slightly different.
Measurements: 39 inches wide across the shoulders, 40 inches wide at the waist, and 25 inches shoulder to hem.
Condition: Excellent, lightly used, some very slight soil is possible, some loose threads
