Unique blouse style huipil from the town of Joyabaj. This huipil has the sides taken in so that it more resembles a blouse. This huipil measures 34″ across the shoulders, 25 1/2″ across the bottom edge (side to side), and 19″ from the shoulder to the bottom edge. The neck opening is round and measures 5 1/2″ in diameter (very tight to pull over adult head). The sides are tapered and have been stitched to create armholes.

This classic huipil is machine embroidered with the traditional Joyabaj circular design that radiates from the collar in a spectrum of colors. The caps on the sleeves have the same circular decoration. The background fabric is a brown woven cotton blend with tiny stripes of burgundy and green.

Additional photos can be found here.

This huipil is in good used condition, with some wear on the embroidery especially at the neckline and on one of the sleeves. There is some loose stitching where the panels join. A lovely textile!

Unique blouse style huipil from the town of Joyabaj. This smaller modern huipil had previously had the sides taken in so that it more resembled a blouse. The stitching was removed and it now lays out flat. This huipil measures 32″ from sleeve tip to sleeve tip and 19″ from the shoulder to the bottom edge. The neck opening is round and measures 6″ in diameter.

This modern style huipil is machine embroidered with the traditional Joyabaj circular design that radiates from the collar in a spectrum of colors. The round circles are accented with a tiny amount of silver thread. The caps on the sleeves have the same circular decoration. There is a lovely pair of quetzales on each shoulder and a darling bird amongst flowers in the middle of the huipil on each side. The background fabric is a brown woven cotton blend with tiny stripes of burgundy and green.

Additional photos can be found here.

This huipil is in good used condition. Perhaps a few loose threads and some fading of the bodice (this fading is not nearly as dramatic as seen in the photos).

Unique blouse style huipil from the town of Joyabaj. This smaller modern huipil has had the sides taken in so that it more resembles a blouse. This huipil measures 36″ from sleeve tip to sleeve tip, 19″ across the chest (laid flat, under the armpits), and 20″ from the shoulder to the bottom edge. The neck opening is round and measures 6 3/4″ in diameter. It has a tiny slit of 1/2″ in both the front and back to allow more head room.

The randa, or seam, in both the front and back are decorated with a basket of flowers with birds resting on top and a row of flowers that cascade down the front. The background fabric is a red woven cotton blend with tiny stripes of black and white.

This huipil is in very good used condition. Perhaps a few loose threads and some stretching of the fabric around the sleeves due to the ‘tailored’ fit.

Large and beautiful woven corte, or mayan skirt, accented ikat design with beautiful colors, from the town of Joyabaj. The corte is a wrap-around skirt that consists of a cut of cloth usually joined to form a tube into which the woman steps. Excess material is wrapped around the body and folded at the waist in pleats, and tied with a faja (belt).

This fairly large corte measures 30″ wide and 59 1/2″ long (doubled). Cortes are sewn together to make a tube. This corte has the opening at the long sides as shown in the picture of the corte hanging. If the stitching joining the sides of the tube were removed, this fabric would measure approximately 30″ by 119″ laid out flat.

This corte is beautiful with its accented ikat design that is accented with colors of purple, green, yellow, and orange with many other colored accent stripes including a very faint silver metallic thread. This heavy fabric is slightly worn which gives it a softer feel. Fabric from cortes can be used in a variety of ways, such as table covers, bed covers, curtains, throw pillows, etc.

This corte is in very good used condition, with very little sign of wear. Perhaps a few loose threads.
