756 Comalapa-1711Comalapa

Great vintage huipil with colorful flowers! It is from the town of Comalapa. This lovely huipil measures 30″ across the shoulders, 28″ across the lower edge, and 23.5″ from the shoulders to the lower edge. The head opening is more or less square and measures 5″ x 5.5″ (generous).

This huipil is unique with its deep rich colors and hand weaving accented with soft thread that features beautiful flowers in the classic style of Comalapa. The woven threads are a mix of pinks with accent colors of olive green, pink, and yellow. The sleeve caps have matching designs. The background is thick hand woven cotton/acrylic blend.

This huipil is in fair used condition, with some signs of wear, including two larger repairs on one side. A lovely vintage piece!
