Woman's huipil measuring about 32 inches wide and 29-32 inches long
This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is dark red cotton with fine green stripes. The small geometric designs were added during the weaving process using the technique of supplemental-weft brocading. These designs were woven of mixed cotten and synthetic threads. The huipil consists of three panels, joined at the edges to form the garment. Three of the lower edges have a cut warp fringe, the other three edges are selvage-finished. The fancy adornment around the head- and arm-holes is retained. The side stitching, which makes the huipil into a finished garment to be used, has been removed. This huipil is a nice example from this date period.
Measurements: 32 inches wide across, and about 29-32 inches long from shoulder to hem.
Condition: Very Good, used, with light wear and some slight soil possible. The lengths of the different panels vary somewhat, as can be seen in the first photo.
