771 Almolonga-2168Almolonga

Very heavy and very large vintage huipil with early weaving and design! It is from Almolonga in the Quetzaltenango region of Guatemala. This expansive huipil measures 33″ across the shoulders, and 32″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 5 1/2″ in diameter (very small).

This vintage huipil is unique with early woven design of the Almolonga region that features geomorphic designs in beautiful colors throughout the bodice on both sides. These designs are not often seen anymore. The background fabric is a heavy, deep red woven cotton. The collar is accented in a lovely machine embroidered flower circle and trimmed in a black velveteen.

This huipil is in very good used vintage condition, with a few signs of wear, mainly on the embroidered collar accent. This wonderfully larger huipil would be a stunning wall hanging or great for wear!
