Vintage 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 33″ across the shoulders, 32″ across the chest, 22 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded).  The neck opening is round and measures 5 1/2″ in diameter (smaller). The sides have been stitched to create armholes.

This soft three panel huipil is striking with elaborate weaving that features a very unique multicolored classic flower design throughout the body and shoulders featuring roses . The neckline is decorated with the design of a radiating sun, traditional for the region. The background fabric is woven rich brown cotton.

This huipil is in excellent used condition, with perhaps a few loose threads and little sign of wear. This is a stunning textile for wear or display!
