Elegant vintage woven huipil from the area of San Lucan Toliman. This beautiful classic huipil measures 31″ across the shoulders, 29.5″ across the chest, and 27.5″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). This includes the approximately 7″ of border on the lower edge. The neck opening is rectangular and measures a generous 5.5″ by 6″. The sides are stitched, creating armholes.

 This older huipil is very beautiful with a simple woven pattern throughout. The tiny geomorphic figures are woven into the background fabric. It has a variety of colors in the accent threads. The woven background is a super soft cotton with golden flax tones and stripes of purple and various other colors. There is an added lower edge of commercial fabric that can easily be removed if desired. It was added to allow this huipil to be tucked into the corte/skirt while wearing. This is a wonderful example of the classic style huipiles of the San Lucas Toliman region.

611 Tecpan-0414Tecpán

This striking huipil is from the area of Tecpán. This lovely huipil measures 33” across the shoulders, 26″ across the lower section (is altered to make it more narrow along the waist)and 22 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is diamond shaped and measures 5″ along each of the four sides. The sides have been sewn to create armholes, and trimmed inside to reduce bulk.

This huipil has the more modern style for Tecpán and is beautiful with its bright colors and hand weaving that features a row full of bouquets of flowers. The colors are shades of green, purple, black, and red. The background fabric is heavy woven white cotton. The thread is predominantly cotton.

Additional photos can be found here.

This huipil is in good used condition with few signs of wear, perhaps a few loose threads and very slight discoloration of the white background. Some slight wear at the neckline where the panels join. The lower edges of the panels have a loose warp where the extra threads are woven back into the huipil. This is common in many styles of weaving.

San Raimundo 391-0850San Raimundo

Very unique and hard to find vintage huipil in excellent condition! This huipil is from the area of San Raimundo. This is a very unique vintage style huipil full of color.  This lovely huipil measures 34” across the shoulders, and 24 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is rectangular and measures 4 1/2” x 5 3/4″. The sides are not stitched closed, so this huipil can be opened fully for display or easily stitched closed for wear.

This huipil is beautiful with its deep rainbow of colors on a deep burgundy red cotton background. Generally, huipiles of this area are woven on a multicolor background with much use of yellows. This vintage hupil is unique due to its restricted color palate. The design features the traditional animal motifs found in the huipiles of this region, including birds, cats and deer throughout the bodice. The figures are much more noticeable than the tradition style huipiles of the area due to the solid color background. There is much use of wool thread in this huipil. The background is medium to heavy weight cotton. The collar is trimmed in black velvet with a gold cord accent.

Additional photos can be found here.

This huipil is in excellent used condition, with very little sign of wear. There are perhaps a few loose threads. There are faint creases in the fabric where the huipil was gathered and sewn to make it smaller, but has since been opened to its full size. These are easily ironed out. Beautiful and unique vintage work of art!
