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 designs were added after the weaving process was finished using needle embroidery. They 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) has been removed.
Measurements: approximately 38 inches wide (average) and 37 inches long.
Condition: Excellent, lightly used, some loose threads are possible.
Santa Cruz la Laguna huipiles are unusual in that the decorations on the front and back are different. Both sides are shown, with the back coming first.
