718 Chajul-1084Chajul

Unique huipil from Chajul in a bright teal color! This different huipil measures 30″ across the shoulders, 25 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges. The neck opening is circular and measures 5 3/4″ in diameter (very small opening ~ does not fit over average adult head). The sides have been stitched closed to create armholes.

This lovely huipil is decorated with traditional geomorphic animal figures woven on an aqua blue woven background. The design is woven and embroidered with a multicolored purple yarn. The design is classic for the town of Chajul with figures of across across the bodice on both sides. The shoulders  and sleeves are accented with a coordinating geomorphic design that includes a radiating sun around the collar. The background fabric is medium weight woven cotton blend.

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