Woman's huipil measuring approximately 35 inches wide and 23 inches long
This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is white cotton, with a colored stripe at the edge of each panel. The large geometric designs were added during the weaving process using the technique of supplemental weft brocading. They were made using all cotton yarns. The huipil consists of two panels, seemed down the center with a simple hand-stitch. All four lower edges are selvage finished. The adornment around the head-hole is retained. In this case it consists of an embroidered collar which was made separately and then sewn onto the fabric. The side stitching (which made the huipil into a finished garment to be used) has been removed.
Measurements: approximately 35 inches wide (average) and 23 inches long.
Condition: Very Good, moderately used, light soil possible.
