Product Description

Woman's huipil measuring 28-30 inches wide and 29 inches long


This beautiful post-1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. The designs were all added using the technique of needle embroidery, after the weaving process. They are mostly small birds, and a few flowers. The threads employed are a mixture of cotton and synthetic. The huipil consists of two panels, seamed down the center with a plain hand stitch. Two of the lower edges are selvage-finished, and the other two show a simple warp fringe. The hand emroidery around the neck was also applied after the weaving was finished. The stitching under the arm-holes has been removed, so that the garment can be laid flat or worn like a poncho.

Measurements: 28 to 30 inches wide and 29 inches shoulder to hem.

Condition: Very Good, lightly used, some very slight soil is possible, some loose threads, some slight fading.
