Unique huipil from the Chichicastenango region. Traditional tapestry style with beautiful designs and incredible colors. Fantastic texture too! This is a very stunning  huipil from the Chichicastenango region of Guatemala, famous for having one of the largest markets in the country. This huipil measures 34″ across the shoulders, 25″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded).  The neck opening is round and measures 5″ in diameter with an additional 2 3/4″ snap-closed slit to aid in pulling over the head (note: slightly smaller fit over the head). The sides have been stitched to create armholes.

This three panel huipil is striking with elaborate weaving that features a very unique multicolored classic flower design throughout the body and shoulders. The background fabric is woven black cotton.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with perhaps a few loose threads. There is slight wear in a few places in the design. This is a beautiful textile!
