880 San Juan la Laguna-4285San Juan la Laguna

BRAND NEW! This is a very unique item for Ixchel Textiles! We generally do not purchase any new textiles but due to the extreme difficulty in finding huipiles from this area we went directly to a weaving cooperative in San Juan la Laguna to find this special huipil. This is one of two that we brought back from the trip.

Striking huipil from San Juan la Laguna. The collar is accented with the classic design circling the neck opening that is representative in huipiles from the area. This two lienzo huipil measures 31″ across the shoulders, 30″ across the chest, and 25″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is more or less square and measures approximately 5.25″ x 6.25. The sides have been stitched to create armholes.

The accent around the collar is a rainbow of colors hand embroidered in soft acrylic thread that extends to the little squares below the neckline circle. The background fabric is a crisp woven cotton blend in red with wonderful white stripes.

Additional photos can be found here.

This huipil is brand new and has not been worn (except for photos).  This is a great opportunity to purchase a brand new huipil! A spectacular textile for display or wear!

Unique huipil from San Juan la Laguna. This three lienzo huipil measures 33″ across the shoulders, 27″ across the chest, and 17 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded) with an addition 3″ tassel along the lower edge. The neck opening is square and measures approximately 6 1/2″ by 7″. The sides have been stitched to create armholes.

The simple yet elegant pattern is woven throughout the bodice on both sides in a lovely chocolate brown thread. The background fabric is a white woven cotton with predominantly teal blue and green stripes. There are tassels along both the front and back of the huipil. The sides have been taken in and stitched, but could easily be widened by removing the simple stitching along the sides

This is a very lovely huipil from San Juan la Laguna. It is in very good condition with very little sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads and a tiny faint stain in the lower section.
