Small man's shirt measuring 20 inches wide and 28 inches long.
This ca. 1980's daily use man's shirt 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 shirts of San Antonio are made from backstrap-loomed fabric with narrow warp stripes. This shirt consists of two panels, seemed with a very fine stitch. All of the lower edges are nicely finished. The adornment around the head- and arm-holes is retained; the attached arm pieces are also woven on a backstrap loom. This shirt still exists as originally worn.
Measurements: 20 inches wide, and 28 inches long, more or less, from shoulder to hem. The width across the shouilders, from sleeve end to end, is 38 inches.
