683 Almolonga-0603Almolonga

Very heavy and very large huipil with beautiful weaving and design! It is from Almolonga in the Quetzaltenango region of Guatemala. This expansive huipil measures 30″ across the shoulders, and 34″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 5″ in diameter with an additional 2″ slit along one to ease pulling over the head. The sides have been sewn to create armholes.

This huipil is striking with the classic woven design of the Almolonga region that features zigzag rivers in a pale golden-yelow and white pattern with accents in pale purple throughout the bodice on both sides. The background fabric is a heavy, deep red woven cotton. The collar is accented in a lovely hand and machine embroidered flower circle and trimmed in a black velveteen. The sleeves are trimmed in the same black accent.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with few signs of wear. There is some slight wear on the randa stitching. This wonderfully larger huipil would be a stunning wall hanging or great for wear! Please bear in mind the heavy weight of this huipil will affect the shipping cost.
