Product Description

Woman's huipil measuring approximately 32 inches wide and 22 inches long
This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is cotton, of multi-colored stripes. The colorful designs were added during the weaving process using the technique of supplemental-weft brocading. They were made using mish cotton and polished cotton. The huipil consists of two panels, seemed down the center and decorated with a fancy randa stitch. All lower edges are selvage-finished, though those on one side are somewhat loose from the removal of the batten when the weaving was terminated. The adornment around the head- and arm-holes is retained. The side stitching, which makes the huipil into a finished garment to be used, has been removed.

Measurements: 32 inches wide, and 22 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.
