Woman's huipil measuring 31 inches wide and 21.5 inches long
This post-1980 daily use huipil was woven on a treadle loom. In San Martin, huipiles are woven both on the traditional back-strap and on the old Spanish-style treadle looms. This huipil is of all cotton and some synthetic threads, and of very traditional geometric designs. The designs were all added during the weaving process using supplemental weft brocading, and they are very finely done. It consists of two panels, seemed down the center. The rows of designs in the two panels match quite well. All four of the lower panel edges are hemmed. The stitching under the arm-holes, which makes this a usable garment, has been removed.
Measurements: 30-32 inches wide and 21.5 inches shoulder to hem.
Condition: Very Good, lightly used, some very slight soil is possible, some loose threads, some slight fading.
