Classic vintage huipil from Chichicastenango! Traditional tapestry style with beautiful floral design. Fantastic texture and color! Very stunning woven huipil from the Chichicastenango region of Guatemala, famous for having one of the largest markets in the country. This elegant huipil measures 34″ across the shoulders, 25″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 6″ in diameter.

This three panel huipil is striking with elaborate weaving that features multi-colored classic rose flower designs. The neckline is decorated with the radiating sun, traditional for the region. The background fabric is medium/heavy-weight burgundy cotton.

This huipil is in good used condition some sign of wear. There are a few loose threads and slight color variations.  This is a very lovely piece!
