Yellow San Lucas woman's huipil measuring 31 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. All four of the lower edges are hemmed. 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, is still present. This huipil was purchased in 2006.
Measurements: 31 inches wide, and 24 inches shoulder to hem.
Condition: Excellent, lightly used, some very slight soil is possible, some loose threads. There is some light wear around the neck.
