Product Description

Woman's huipil measuring approximately 31 inches wide and 35 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 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. Two lower edges are loosely hemmed, one is selvage finished, and one is fringed where the warp was cut from the loom. 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 also present.

Measurements: approximately 31 inches wide (average) and 35 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.
