This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is cotton, red with narrow white stripes. The design around the neck and chest were added using needle embroidery; this embroidery was also made using cotton thread. The huipil consists of two panels, seemed down the center. three lower edges are selvage-finished, and three have cut warp fringes. The adornment around the head- and arm-holes is retained. The side stitching, which makes the huipil into a finished garment to be used, is still present.
Measurements: 22 inches wide, and about 17 inches long from shoulder to hem. The huipil is the same design both front and back.
Condition: Very Good, used, with some loose threads and light soil possible, slight fading in places. One spot of dirt can also be seen in the lower left. This is an attractive and authentic garment.
