Uncommon smaller huipil from the lakeside town of San Jorge la Laguna. Most women from this town have adopted the traditional clothing of the nearby Sololá, so this style huipil is no longer seen about town. This simply woven colorful huipil measures 24 1/2″ across the shoulders, and 22″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is rectangular shaped, and measures 4 1/2” x 5 1/2″.
This huipil is fully woven with cotton thread throughout and the collar is trimmed with hand embroidered piping in multiple colors.

The huipil is in very good used condition with a few loose threads. There is a slight amount of discoloration in a few small spots of the white background fabric where the predominant green color ran.
