Traditional woman's huipil of ceremonial design
This post-1980 is made from all cotton, hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The traditional geometric designs were added during the weaving process using the technique of supplemental-weft brocading. It is of traditional ceremonial design and may have been made for ceremonial use, since it lacks any adornment around the head- and arm-holes. It consists of two panels, seemed down the center. All four of the lower edges are selvage-finished. There also appears to have never been any stitching under the arm holes, another indication of possible ceremonial sobrehuipil use.
Measurements: 33 inches wide, 28 inches shoulder to hem.
Condition: Excellent, lightly used, some very slight soil is possible.
