673 Palin-0475Palín

Unique huipil made in the town of Palín. This super lovely huipil measures 34″ across the shoulders, 23″ across the chest, 22″ from the shoulders to the bottom edges. The neck opening is square and measures 7″ along each of the four sides. The sleeve openings measure 5 1/2″ – 6″ laid flat, or approximately 11″ – 12″ around.

Beautiful weaving throughout this huipil with lovely embroidered accents around the collar and sleeve caps.

Additional photos can be found here.

This huipil is in very good used condition with little sign of wear, except for perhaps a few loose threads and a couple of smaller purple stains in the lower background fabric. It looks like something might have bled onto the woven fabric. A very unique piece!

Unique and bright red hand-woven faja/belt made in the town of Palín. Fajas are used as the belt to hold up the corte (skirt) in the mayan traje or outfit. This beautiful faja measures 98″ long, with an additional 5″ of tassel on one end and 8″ on the other. It also measures 4 3/4” wide. The colorfully woven zigzag design runs approximately 31” on one end and 33″ on the other end.

This faja is woven in a rich red color and is accented with a colorfully woven zigzag design representing the mountains and rivers that flow through the area. There is much use of cotton threads in this vintage faja with an tiny accent of gold metallic threads woven at one end on one side. This is a fairly thick textile, and stiff due to the heavy nature of the woven threads.

Additional photos can be found here.

This faja is in excellent used condition with no sign of wear, except for perhaps a few loose threads and creasing along the length. A stunning textile for display or use. Would make an exceptional table runner!
