Product Description

Fully brocaded woman's huipil very finely woven
This post-1980 woman's huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is cotton. The finely-brocaded geometric designs were added during the weaving process using the technique of supplemental-weft brocading. Brocading is of a mixture of synthetic and cotton threads. The huipil consists of three panels, seemed at the edges to form the garment. The lower edges are all very nicely selvage-finished. The adornment around the head- and arm-holes is retained. The stitching at the sides, which makes the huipil into a finished garment to be used, is also present. The brocaded designs are on all three panels and are very fine.

Measurements: 43 inches wide across the body, and 32 inches, more or less, shoulder to hem.

Condition: Very Good, lightly used, shows some slight wear. The huipiles from this village in the mountainous part of western Guatemala are invariable large and very finely woven and finished.
