737 Patzicia-1469Patzicía

Beautiful huipil from the Patzicía area of Guatemala. This detailed huipil measures 32 1/2″ across the shoulders, and 20″ (back shorter than front) from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is circular (scalloped shaped) and measures 6” in diameter. The sides have been stitched closed to create armholes.

This huipil has the classic geomorphic shapes throughout the bodice that is the style of huipiles from Patzicía. The accents are in a rainbow of colors. They are woven on a super soft deep burgundy, striped cotton background fabric that is very popular in the Patzicía and Patzun areas. This super soft weaving is of a medium weight.

This huipil is in very good used condition. There is very slight wear around the collar and a few loose threads. Nothing to detract from this piece of art. A very striking huipil for wear display!

730 Quetzaltenango-1376Quetzaltenango

Very large, classic huipil with beautiful weaving and striking embroidered accents! It is from the Quetzaltenango region of Guatemala (Frequently referred to as Xela). This bright huipil measures 31″ across the shoulders, and 34″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 5″ in diameter with an additional 1 3/4″ tie-closed slit to aid in pulling over the head. The sides are stitched to create armholes.

This brightly colored huipil is accented around the collar with hand-guided, machine-done embroidery that features pink and red flowers. The woven background is done in a rainbow of colors. The weaving features geomorphic figures of birds, corn plants, zigzag rivers, and mayan stars. Where the panels join in this three panel huipil, there is a colorful ‘randa’ of hand sewn seams. The background fabric is a crisp woven white cotton. The neck and sleeve openings are trimmed in a soft velveteen. This is a soft but very heavy huipil!

Additional photos can be found here.

This huipil is in great used condition, with little sign of wear, a few loose threads and slight wear in the design in a couple of places on the chest, and a faint stain in the lower, white cotton section. A wonderfully colorful textile for wear or display!

Classic elegant huipil with beautiful deep colors from the town of Todos Santos Cuchumatán.

This daily use vintage huipil is lovely with a simple and delicate woven design of tiny diamonds throughout the bodice on both sides. This style of weaving leaves the loose ends on the inside, creating a shaggy lining that aids in warmth in the high mountain area. The huipil is accented around the collar with radiating lines of applique that is classic to the area. The sleeve openings are trimmed with a teal velveteen applique. The collar has the same burgundy velveteen trim. The background fabric is black woven cotton.

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!
