San Antonio Aguas Calientes

Exquisite huipil made in the town of San Antonio Aguas Calientes. This area is known for its incredibly detailed and fine weaving style that is frequently copied in nearby towns. This particular huipil is a fantastic example of this style.

This lovely huipil measures 31″ across the shoulders, 30″ across the chest, 24″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is diamond shaped and measures a generous 6″ along each of the four sides. The sides have been stitched closed to create arm holes.

This spectacular huipil has the traditional rows of zigzag mountains, triangular patterns of the rivers, and mayan stars. The intricate birds and fruit across the chest and flowers across the shoulders is done in the very fine and detailed San Antonio weaving style, ‘doble cara’, where the pattern is identical both inside and out. The weaving is fine, causing this huipil to be soft to the touch. This is a perfect example of the classic San Antonio Aguas Calientes design in eye-catching colors. The background fabric is a black woven cotton.

This huipil is in excellent used condition with little sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads. It is quite stunning for its intense colors and weaving!
