633 Chajul-0820Chajul

Beautiful classic huipil from Chajul in rich purple color! This super lovely huipil measures 30″ across the shoulders, 20 1/2″ to 23″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The panels are uneven. The neck opening is diamond shaped and measures 4 1/2″ by 5″ (snug fit over large adult head).
The sides have been sewn to create armholes.

This super soft, classic huipil is lovely with traditional geomorphic animal figures woven in stunning colors including artiseda threads on a rich purple 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.

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!
