671 Chajul-0366Chajul

Beautiful classic vintage huipil from Chajul in deep burgundy-red color! This super lovely huipil measures 31″ across the shoulders, 19″ – 21″ from the neckline to the bottom edges. The front and back are not the same length. The neck opening is more or less circular and measures 6″ in diameter. The sides have been stitched closed to create armholes.

This super soft, classic huipil is lovely with traditional geomorphic animal figures woven on a burgundy woven background. The design is a mix of purple, blue, and green. The design is classic for the town of Chajul with figures of birds across the bodice on both sides. The shoulders  and sleeves are accented with a coordinating geomorphic design. The background fabric is medium weight, super soft woven cotton in a rich burgundy-red color.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with little visible sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads, mainly at the sleeve openings. A spectacular piece of art that can either be worn or displayed!
