Product Description

SORRY this item has been SOLD
Wedding sobrehuipil measuring 36 inches wide and 22 inches long
This post-1980 wedding over-huipil is from the Sacatepequez town of San Raimundo. It was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is pure white cotton. The colorful designs were added during the weaving process using the technique of supplemental-weft brocading. They were made using high quality mish cotton threads. The huipil consists of two panels, seemed down the center with a very fine randa stitch. All lower edges are selvage-finished, though those on one side are slightly looser from the removal of the batten when the weaving was terminated. The adornment around the head- and arm-holes is retained. Since this was a ceremonial huipil worn over another garment, the sides were never stitched.

Measurements: 36 inches wide, and 22 inches long, more or less, from shoulder to hem. The huipil is the same design both front and back.

Condition: Very Good, probably used only once, with some loose threads and light soil possible.
