572 Aguacatan-0267Aguacatán

Exquisite crochet and 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 33″ across the shoulders, 24 1/2″ across the lower edge (tapers), 19″ from the neckline to the bottom edges. The neck opening is diamond shaped and measures 5″ by 5″ (tight to pull over adult head). The sides have been stitched closed to create armholes.

This white satiny huipil is elegant with its stunning crochet design around the collar and sleeves in brilliant colors of red and orange. The crochet is a unique touch around the collar and is accented with lovely flowers capping the sleeves. This huipil is decorated with appliqué and machine stitching throughout the bodice and finished with a delicate lace trim around the bottom edge. This is all done on a commercial white background fabric that has delicate flowers within the fabric.

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.
