Woman's huipil measuring 29-32 inches wide and 24 inches long
This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. It is all cotton and of very traditional geometric designs. The designs were all added during the weaving process using supplemental weft brocading, and they are very finely done. It consists of two panels, seemed down the center. Two of the four lower edges are beautifully selvage-finished, the other two are hemmed. Original adornment around the head-hole is retained. The stitching under the arm-holes is still present, as originally used.
Measurements: 32 inches wide across the shoulders and bottom edge, tapered to 29 inches wide at the waist, and 24 inches shoulder to hem, more or less.
Condition: Excellent, very lightly used, some very slight soil is possible. This is a very handsome huipil.
