Super tiny child’s 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 sweet little huipil measures 18″ across the shoulders, 13″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 4.25″ in diameter with an additional 1″ slip to aid in pulling over the head.

This little huipil would have been used for an infant or very small toddler. 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 rich purple cotton. The small huipiles make fantastic wall hangings, especially for girls rooms.

This huipil is in great used condition with little sign of wear. Perhaps a few loose threads.  This is a very lovely piece!
