Traditional San Lucas woman's huipil measuring 28 inches wide and 24 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. Two of the lower edges are roughly selvage-finished, and two have warp fringes. Original adornment around the head-hole is applied decorative elements, and is retained. The stitching under the arm-holes, which makes this a usable garment, has been removed.
Measurements: 28 inches wide, and 24 inches shoulder to hem.
Condition: Excellent, lightly used, some very slight soil is possible, some loose threads.
