Woman's huipil measuring 29 inches wide and 22-25 inches long
This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap 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 two panels, seemed down the center. The rows of designs in the two panels match quite well. All of the four of the lower panel edges are selvage-finished. Original adornment around the head-hole is retained. The stitching under the arm-holes has been removed, so that the garment can be opened and laid flat.
Measurements: 29 inches wide; the front measures 22 inches shoulder to hem, the back is longer and measures 25 inches.
Condition: Very Good, lightly used, some slight soil is possible, some loose threads. There is some looseness in the weave on the back, where the batten was removed when the weaving was terminated.
