Product Description

Girl's huipil measuring 23 inches wide and 21 inches long
This post-2000 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is a dark burgundy polished cotton. The designs were added during the weaving process using the technique of supplemental-weft brocading. All brocading appear to be of cotton threads, though there may be a small amount of synthetic threads. The elaborate adornment around the neck was added after the weaving. The huipil consists of a single wide panel. The adornment around the head-hole is retained; but the side stitches, which make the huipil into a finished garment to be used, have been removed.

Measurements: 23 inches wide and 21 inches shoulder to hem.

Condition: Very Good, lightly used, some very slight soil is possible, some loose threads, some slight fading. The hem is a cut warp fringe. NOTE that the actual background color is darker burgundy that the photo indicates.
