Product Description

Woman's huipil measuring 27 inches wide and 21 inches long, shoulder to hem

This ca. 2000 daily use huipil was woven on a backstrap loom. The traditional geometric designs were added during the weaving process using the technique of supplemental-weft brocading; they are almost entirely of cotton threads. It consists of two panels, seamed down the center of the garment. All of the lower edges are selvage-finished. The stitching down the sides, under the arm-holes, which makes the huipil into a finished garment as used by the Maya women, has been removed to facilitate display. This a very nicely-made and finely-woven example, quite heavy in thickness. The traditional Nebah collar design was added using machine embroidery.

Measurements: 27 inches wide and 21 inches shoulder to hem.

Condition: Very Good, lightly used, some very slight soil is possible, a few loose or pulled threads; this is a very clean and very finely-woven huipil.  Photos of both sides are shown.
