Product Description

Ceremonial over-huipil of natural hand-spun cotton
This ca. 1980 ceremonial use sobrehuipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is all natural hand-spun cotton, locally known as cayuscate in Spanish or ixcaco in Mayan. 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. All lower edges are selvage-finished. 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: 48 inches wide, and about 30 inches long from shoulder to hem. The huipil has different designs front and back, so photos of both sides are shown.

Condition: Excellent, lightly used, with some loose threads and light soil possible. This is an attractive and authentic garment, and extremely uncommon
