Product Description

Sorry, This item has been SOLD
This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is all cotton. The designs were added during the weaving process using the technique of supplemental-weft brocading. All brocading appear to be of polished cotton threads, though there may be a small amount of synthetic threads. The velvet adornment around the neck was added after the weaving. The huipil consists of a single wide panel, as is traditional construction of the Palin huipiles. Two of the lower edges are selvage-finished, and the other two are hemmed. The adornment around the head-hole is retained, as are the side stitches, which makes the huipil into a finished garment to be used.

Measurements: 26.5 inches wide across the shoulders, tapering to 24 inches at the waist; and 16 inches, more or less, shoulder to hem.

Condition: Excellent, lightly used, some very slight soil is possible.
