Santa Maria de Jesús

Full of Mayan figures! Very stunning embroidered huipil in unique white color! It is from the town of Santa Maria de Jesús, inspired by the designs of Santiago Atitlan. This very colorful huipil measures 26″ across the shoulders, and 28″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is rectangular shaped, and measures 7” x 5 1/2″.

This huipil is absolutely beautiful with brilliantly colored embroidery that features squares of various mayan figures in many shades of colors on each side. The collar is surrounded by embroidered colorful flowers with green leaves.  The background is a crisp white commercial fabric. The embroidery is all machine done free-hand, and is truly an art form. Just amazing! This is a unique variation on the incredibly beautiful ‘fiesta’ huipiles of Santa Maria de Jesús.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with perhaps a few loose threads and no visible stains on the white fabric.

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).

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.
