528 Camisa San Juan Atitan-0300San Juan Atitán

 Very striking man’s camisa/shirt with beautiful weaving and design! It is from San Juan Atitán in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala. This colorful and ornate camisa measures 23″ across the shoulders, and 25″ from the neckline to the bottom edges. The bodice measures 22″ across the chest. The sleeves measure 21″ in length.

This camisa is striking with woven accent designs on the collar and sleeve ends that feature Mayan stars. Elegant multicolored thread trims the shirt opening down the front and the sides of this lovely man’s shirt. The background is red, purple, and blue striped cotton blend with very tiny silver accent stripes. The sleeves have flaps that are tucked back inside to create volume in the sleeves. Please note that the underarm sections of this camisa are not sewn closed, as that is the style of these camisas. Can be easily stitched closed if desired.

Please note that this item can be combined with the sombrero, tzute, faja, and capixaij (capishay) from San Juan Atitán that we have for sale to have a man’s outfit from the pueblo, just add white cotton pants and it is complete! Great photo of how they are generally worn here.

Additional photos can be found here.

This camisa is in excellent condition, with a few signs of wear. This would be a great shirt or light jacket, or as a stunning decoration piece! This is a very glorious textile!
