601 Chajul-0127Chajul

Beautiful classic huipil from Chajul in rich green color! This super lovely huipil measures 29″ across the shoulders, 20 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges. The scalloped neck opening is more or less square and measures 4″ along each of the four sides (may be a tight fit over average sized head). The sides have been stitched closed to create armholes.

This super soft, classic huipil is lovely with traditional geomorphic animal figures woven in stunning colors including some metallic accent threads on a rich green cotton blend background. The design is classic for the town of Chajul with figures across the bodice on both sides. The shoulders  and sleeves are accented with a coordinating geomorphic design. The threads in the designs are mostly lustrina. The background fabric is medium weight, super soft woven cotton.

We have tried to show the rich green color of this huipil, but it does not seem to like to share its beauty with the camera.

This huipil is in excellent used condition, with a few signs of wear, perhaps a few loose threads. A spectacular piece of art in a very unique color that can either be worn or displayed!
