Woman's huipil measuring 34 inches wide and 30 inches long.
This ca. 1970's daily use huipil is from the Tzutujil Maya village of San Antonio Palopo, located on Lake Atitlan. It was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is cotton. The huipiles of San Antonio are unusual in having no brocaded designs, just the narrow warp stripes. The huipil consists of three panels, seamed at the edges to join. Three of the lower edges are beautifully selvage-finished, the other three have fine sewn hems. The adornment around the head- and arm-holes is retained, and the stitching under the arm holes is still present. The huipil still exists as originally worn.
Measurements: 34 inches wide, and 30 inches long, more or less, from shoulder to hem. The huipil is the same design both front and back.
Condition: Very Good, lightly used with some light wear and light soil possible.
