Product Description

Woman's huipil measuring 29 inches wide and 22 inches from shoulder to hem.

This ca. 1980's daily use huipil is made from all cotton, hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The traditional geometric designs were added during the weaving process using the technique of supplemental-weft brocading, The naturalistic designs of fruits, flowers, people and animals utilized a very time-consuming two-sided technique unique to San Antonio weavers. It consists of two panels, seemed down the center. Two of the lower edges are loosely hemmed, the other two are selvage-finished. The head-hole is a simple cut in the fabric with the edges turned and sewn. The stitching under the arm-holes, which makes a finished garment to be worn, has been removed.

Measurements: 29 inches wide, 22-23 inches more or less, shoulder to hem.  Photos show both sides.

Condition: Very Good, lightly used, some very slight soil and loose threads possible. This garment was purchased in 2017 and was about 20-30 years old at the time.
