The sleeves measure 20 1/4″ in length from the shoulder seam to the tip of the sleeves.

This camisa is striking with woven accents at the collar and on the sleeves. The collar weaving is on both sides, making it thick and warm against cold and wind. The collar flap is generous in width. The background fabric is white and blue striped cotton with multicolored accent stripes. There is a row of more colorful stripes down the center in the front and in the back. This thick fabric has a ‘denim’ feel and is a very sturdy weight.

This Mayan shirt is in great vintage condition, with a couple of very faint stains. There is also a very tiny (1/2″) singe mark on the lower section of one sleeve. Does not detract from this unique textile! All snaps work. This would be great worn as a shirt or as a jacket for cooler weather, or as a stunning decoration piece!

This camisa is in very good used condition, with few signs of wear. All of the snaps work, just the top snap does not snap as tight as the others. There are a couple of very tiny stains/dingy spots that are too faint/small to see in the photos. There are some dingy areas on the inside of the sleeve cuffs. This would be great worn as a shirt or as a jacket for cooler weather, or as a stunning decoration piece!

Camisa Nahualá 388-0831Nahualá

Darling young boys’ camisa shirt from the Nahualá region of Guatemala. This deep red camisa measures 19 1/2″ across the shoulders from tip to tip, not including the 11″ length of each sleeve. The length from shoulder to bottom edge is 23 1/2″. The head opening is a generous hemmed slit down the front with a decorative collar. This camisa has been constructed to allow expansion in both the bodice and the length and width of the sleeves with some basic stitching. It appears to be able to be expanded approximately 6″ across the chest and 3″ on each of the sleeve lengths and 1 1/2″ on the diameter of each sleeve.

This camisa is woven in a soft red cotton blend and trimmed with classic geomorphic diamond patterns that are traditional in the area of Nahualá. The accent patterns are mainly yellow with pink, green, purple, and a variety of other colors woven in predominantly acrylic threads. The background fabric is deep red with stripes of white, green, yellow, blue, and orange.

Additional photos can be found here.

This camisa is in excellent condition; almost like new. There is slight fuzzing of the threads on the collar area, more than likely due to storage. A great chance to have a wonderful boys’ camisa. Perfect for display or wear!

$45.00
