#760 Chajul-2005Chajul

Beautiful classic vintage huipil from Chajul in deep rich red color! This super lovely huipil measures 30″ across the shoulders, 28″ across the chest, 20 1/2″ – 22″ from the neckline to the bottom edges. The front and back are not the same length. The neck opening is diamond shaped and measures 4 1/2″ along each of the four sides. The sides have been stitched closed to create armholes.

This super soft, classic huipil is lovely with traditional geomorphic animal figures woven on a deep red woven background. The design is a mix of purple, blue, and olive 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 deep red color.

This huipil is in great used vintage condition, with little visible sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads and a few very faint stains/shading. A spectacular piece of art that can either be worn or displayed!
