566 Aguacatan-0226Aguacatán

Exquisite satin design from the region of Aguacatán. This beautiful huipil is highly influenced by the Mexican style of huipil with a white background and lots of orange and red colors.  This huipil measures 30 1/2″ across the shoulders, 25 1/2″ across the lower edge (tapers), 20 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges. The neck opening is round and measures 5 1/2″ in diameter (slightly tight to pull over adult head). The sides have been stitched closed to create armholes.

This white satin huipil is elegant with its stunningly embroidered design around the collar and sleeves in brilliant colors of red, yellow, and orange. The embroidery features sweet little strawberries around the collar and lovely flowers capping the sleeves. The collar and sleeves are trimmed in red velvet/velveteen. This huipil is accented with appliqué and machine stitching throughout the bodice and finished with a delicate lace trim around the bottom edge.

This unique huipil is in very good used condition, with a few loose threads. There is some minor wear at the sleeves and collar due to the delicate nature of the material used in the huipiles of Aguacatán.
