Large woman's huipil measuring approximately 33 inches wide and 30 inches long
This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is cotton, with somewhat of a supple sheen. The large geometric design panel was added during the weaving process using supplemental weft brocading. The additional design work around the neck was added after the weaving process was finished using needle embroidery and applique. These were made using mostly synthetic yarns. It consists of two panels, seemed down the center. All lower edges are loosely hemmed. The adornment around the head- and arm-holes is retained. The side stitching (which made the huipil into a finished garment to be used) is still present.
Measurements: approximately 33 inches wide (average) and 30 inches long.
Condition: Excellent, lightly used, some loose threads are possible.
San Marcos huipils are similar to those of its neighbor Santa Cruz, except that on both sides the designs are quite similar. Both sides are shown, with the back coming first.
