#712 Chajul-0956Chajul

Beautiful classic vintage huipil from Chajul in striking white! This super lovely huipil measures 29″ across the shoulders, 21″ from the neckline to the bottom edges. 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 white 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 white cotton.

Additional photos can be found here.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with a few signs of wear, perhaps a few loose threads and a couple of small stains on the bodice. The purple threads of the birds have run a small amount creating a slight purple on the white background. A spectacular piece of art that can either be worn or displayed!
