Unusual woman's huipil from this traditional village, sister to Nahuala.
This post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The foundation fabric is cotton. The small bird designs were added during the weaving process using the technique of supplemental-weft brocading. They were made using cotton threads. The huipil consists of two panels, seemed down the center. All four 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. The photos below show both the front and the back, though they are quite similar.
Measurements: 25 inches wide at the top and 28 inches wide at the base, and about 24-26 inches long from shoulder to hem. The panels are of slightly different length
Condition: Very Good, used, with some loose threads, light soil and slight fading possible. This is a very attractive and authentic garment.
