San Antonio Aguas Calientes

Exquisite huipil made in the town of San Antonio Aguas Calientes. This area is known for its incredibly detailed and fine weaving style that is frequently copied in nearby towns. This particular huipil is a fantastic example of this style.

This lovely huipil measures 29 1/2″ across the shoulders, 23″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is square and measures a generous 7 1/2″ x 8″.  The sides have had the stitching removed, so this huipil opens completely. The sides can easily be stitched closed to create arm holes for wearing.

This spectacular huipil has the traditional rows of zigzag mountains, triangular patterns of the rivers, and mayan stars. The intricate birds and flowers design at the shoulders is done in the very fine and detailed San Antonio weaving style, ‘doble cara’, where the pattern is identical both inside and out. The weaving is incredibly fine, causing this huipil to be wonderfully soft to the touch. This is a perfect example of the classic San Antonio Aguas Calientes design in eye-catching colors. The background fabric is a black woven cotton.
