Product Description

Older traditional Cofradia huipil measuring 39.5 inches wide and 32 inches long
This pre-1960 cofradia huipil was woven on a back-strap loom, as is typical of the huipiles of Santiago Atitlan. The foundation fabric is of cotton, and the embroidery around the neck is of mixed synthetic and cotton yarns. The huipil consists of two panels. Two of the lower edges are selvage finished, and the other two are hemmed. The adornment around the head- and arm-holes is retained. The side stitching (which made the huipil into a finished garment to be used) is present, so the garment appears as it was actually used.

Condition is Good, with no holes or tears. There are stains both from soil and from color runs in the garment, which I have preserved in "As found" condition. There is also some wear around the head hole. It appears that some of the decorative embroidery may have been repaired at a recent date.

Measurements: approximately 39.5 inches wide (average) and 32 inches long. The second photo shows the neckline of the front of the garment, the third photo is of the back side.
