741 Coban-1513Coban

Beautiful, hand-embroidered eyelet style blouse from the region of Coban. This huipil measures 33″ across the shoulders, 28″ across the chest, and 19″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 6″ in diameter. The sides have been stitched to create armholes. The sides have been tailored with stitching and if removed would allow this huipil to be made wider.

This lovely white huipil is fully hand embroidered on a commercial medium/heavy-weight eyelet background. The design around the collar and on the sleeves includes rows of beautiful flowers hand-embroidered in a variety of colors. There are tiny accent beads in the center of some of the flowers. The collar and sleeves are trimmed in a black crochet accent. The background fabric is a white commercial fabric with scalloped edges along the bottom. This huipil does not have a formal hem.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with perhaps a few loose threads. This would be a fantastic piece to wear or display. The handwork in the flowers is amazing!
