Very lovely hand woven huipil with quetzals across the shoulders! It is from Mixco, Guatemala. This elegant larger huipil measures 37″ across the shoulders, and 26″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is rectangular and measures 5” each on the shorter sides and 5 ½” on the longer sides. The sides have had the stitching removed to open the arm holes, but can easily be restitched if desired.
This huipil is very beautiful with a hand woven diamond pattern throughout. It includes rows of quetazles across the shoulders, woven so that the design appears on both the outside and inside. It has a rainbow of colors including the predominant deep green. The collar is trimmed with deep jewel blue thread. The woven background is basic white cotton.
This huipil is in great used condition, with no visible sign of wear.
