Tactic

Super lightweight huipil from the Tactic region. This beautiful huipil measures 36″ across the shoulders, and 19″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 8 1/2″ in diameter.

This huipil is different with a very open style weaving that results in a gauze-like texture with hand weaving that features rows of ‘mayan stars’. The accent colors are green, purple and  blue. The background is an open-woven fabric in white cotton. Frequently this style of huipil (also like the huipiles from Coban) are worn untucked from the corte (skirt).

Additional photos can be found here.

This huipil is in very good used condition, the only flaws being a couple of faint stains on the white background and the occasional loose thread. This is expected due to the delicate style of this weaving.

Very lovely pink and black huipil from the Tactic region of Guatemala.

This simple yet elegant huipil measures 27″ wide across the shoulders, 25” from the shoulders to the bottom hem, and the collar is diamond shaped and each of the four sides measures 4 ¾”. The sides along the shoulders have been gathered to make the bodice narrower. The sides have been stitched to create sleeve openings. The stitching of both of these can be easily removed.

The huipil is woven on a medium weight black cotton background with various shades of pink in the zigzag pattern representing the mountains and rivers. The lower section of the huipil has an added section of soft dark-gray cotton fabric to extend the length of the huipil for ease of tucking into the corte (skirt). This can be easily removed.

This huipil is in good used condition, with a few signs of wear including a few loose or missing threads.

Super lightweight huipil from the Tactic region. This beautiful huipil measures 30″ across the shoulders, and 24″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 7″ in diameter.

This huipil is different with a very open style weaving that results in a guaze-like texture with brilliant hand weaving with satin soft thread that features rows of ‘mayan stars’. The accent colors are glowing jewel and pastel colors of greens, pinks, blues, purples, yellows and more! The background, open-woven fabric is a deep brick-red cotton. There is an added piece of fabric around the bottom to extend the length of this huipil. Frequently this style of huipil (also like the huipiles from Coban) are worn untucked from the corte (skirt). This extra fabric was added so that the wearer can tuck the huipil into their skirt. It would be easy to carefully remove this extra fabric if one wishes.

This huipil is in very good used condition, the only flaws being the occasional pulled or loose thread. This is expected due to the delicate style of this weaving.
