678 San Raimundo-0415San Raimundo

Very large and striking huipil! This huipil is from the town of San Raimundo. These huipiles slightly resemble those from San Juan Sacatepéquez, but are unique in their own way. This lovely huipil measures 39” across the shoulders, and 22″ – 23 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The front and back are different lengths. The neck opening is rectangular and measures 5” x 5 1/2″.

This huipil is beautiful with its deep colors of purple, royal blue, and gold/yellow that features the traditional animal motifs found in the huipiles of this region, including the feathered serpent and turkeys. The colors of the figures are yellow, royal blue, and green. The background fabric has softened with age.

Additional photos can be found here.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with very little sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads. An exquisite textile for display or wear!

Very unique and hard to find vintage huipil in excellent condition! This huipil is from the area of San Raimundo. This is a very unique vintage style huipil full of color.  This lovely huipil measures 34” across the shoulders, and 24 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is rectangular and measures 4 1/2” x 5 3/4″. The sides are not stitched closed, so this huipil can be opened fully for display or easily stitched closed for wear.

This huipil is beautiful with its deep rainbow of colors on a deep burgundy red cotton background. Generally, huipiles of this area are woven on a multicolor background with much use of yellows. This vintage hupil is unique due to its restricted color palate. The design features the traditional animal motifs found in the huipiles of this region, including birds, cats and deer throughout the bodice. The figures are much more noticeable than the tradition style huipiles of the area due to the solid color background. There is much use of wool thread in this huipil. The background is medium to heavy weight cotton. The collar is trimmed in black velvet with a gold cord accent.

This huipil is in excellent used condition, with very little sign of wear. There are perhaps a few loose threads. There are faint creases in the fabric where the huipil was gathered and sewn to make it smaller, but has since been opened to its full size. These are easily ironed out. Beautiful and unique vintage work of art!
