Older style Woman's huipil measuring 35 inches wide and 25 inches long
This ca. 1980 daily use huipil was hand-woven on a backstrap loom. It is of all cotton and polished cotton threads, and of very traditional geometric designs, dating from about 1980. The designs were all added during the weaving process using supplemental weft brocading, and they are very nicely done. It consists of two panels, seemed down the center. The rows of designs in the two panels match quite well. All four of the lower panel edges are selvage-finished. The stitching under the arm-holes, which makes this a usable garment, has been removed.
Measurements: 34-36 inches wide 25 inches shoulder to hem.
Condition: Very Good, lightly used, some very slight soil is possible, some loose threads, some slight fading. There is some looseness in the weaving of the lower sections on one side, from the method in which the weaving was terminated. This can be seen in the first picture below.
