Very finely woven Woman's huipil with lines of very small designs
This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric appears to be cotton, though there may be some synthetic threads. The small naturalistic bird and animal designs were added after the weaving was finished, using hand-embroidery. This embroidery is mixed cotton and synthetic yarns. The huipil consists of two panels, seemed down the center with a simple hand-stitch. Two of the lower edges are selvage-finished and two are hemmed. The adornment around the head-hole is retained. The side stitching (which made the huipil into a finished garment to be used) has been removed.
