Girl's huipil measuring 23.5 inches wide and 19.5 inches long
This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a foot-operated draw loom, often by men in the village. It is of an older style, with broad red shoulder stripe. 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 lower panel edges are hemmed. Original adornment around the head-hole is retained. The stitching under the arm-holes is also present, so the garment appears as originally used. This is a quite attractive example.
Measurements: 23.5 inches wide, and 19 inches shoulder to hem.
Condition: Excellent, very lightly used, some very slight soil is possible, some loose threads.
