Classic San Juan wedding huipil of larger size
This post-1980 wedding huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation is of 100% cotton, and is of very traditional geometric designs. The designs were all added during the weaving process using supplemental weft brocading, and they are of mostly cotton with perhaps a few synthetic threads. It consists of three panels, seemed together with a very fine though simple stitch. All six of the lower panel edges are selvage-finished. Original adornment around the head-hole is retained. The sides of the garment are not stitched. This is a quite attractive example of a very traditional San Juan wedding huipil.
Measurements: approximately 48 inches wide and 24 inches shoulder to hem
Condition: Very Good, very lightly used, some very slight soil is possible. There is some light purple staining in the white areas, probably from folding wet after washing with some resultant bleeding of color into these white areas. I have tried to show this in the bottom photo. Still this is a quite handsome example
