444 Camisa Todos Santos-0281Todos Santos Cuchumatán

Very striking man’s camisa/shirt with beautiful woven accents! It is from Todos Santos Cuchumatán in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala. This colorful and thick camisa measures 23″ across the shoulders (in the back), and 28″ from the neckline to the bottom edges. The sleeves measure 23 1/2″ in length from the shoulder seam to the tip of the sleeves.

This camisa is striking with woven accents at the collar and on the sleeves. The collar weaving is on both sides, making it thick and warm against cold and wind. The collar flap measures a generous 4 1/2″ – 5″ in width. The background fabric is white and blue striped cotton with multicolored accent stripes. There is a row of more colorful stripes down the center in the front and in the back. This thick fabric has a ‘denim’ feel and is a very sturdy weight.

Please note that this item can be combined with the sombrero and pants from Todos Santos Cuchumatán that we have for sale, to have a man’s outfit from the pueblo. Great photo of how they are generally worn here.

Additional photos can be found here.

This camisa is in very good used condition, with few signs of wear. All of the snaps work, just the top snap does not snap as tight as the others. There are a couple of very tiny stains/dingy spots that are too faint/small to see in the photos. There are some dingy areas on the inside of the sleeve cuffs. This would be great worn as a shirt or as a jacket for cooler weather, or as a stunning decoration piece!

Lovely child’s huipil from the town of Todos Santos. This huipil measures 22″ across the shoulders and 19 1/2″ from the shoulders to the bottom edge. The neck opening is sqaure and measures 2″ by 3″ with an additional 3″ slit openening on each side of the neck.

This sweet huipil is in very good condition with some slight wear on the blue lace section around the collar.
