747 Chajul-1653Chajul

Beautiful classic huipil from Chajul in rich purple color! This super lovely huipil measures 32″ across the shoulders, 23″ across the chest, and 26″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is a very generous rectangular shaped opening. The sides have been been tailored and sewn to create armholes.

This super soft, classic huipil is lovely with traditional geomorphic animal figures woven in stunning purple and lavender colors including artiseda threads and a hint of metallic accent thread on a white 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. This particular huipil has had the sides tailored and the excess fabric was cut away, thus this huipil cannot be opened up any wider than shown in the measurements.

Additional photos can be found here.

This huipil is in excellent used condition, with little sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads and a very faint stain on the white background. A spectacular piece of art in a very unique color that can either be worn or displayed!
