456 Joyabaj-0384Joyabaj

Unique vintage blouse style huipil from the town of Joyabaj. This huipil has the sides taken in so that it more resembles a blouse. This huipil measures 33 1/2″ from sleeve tip to sleeve tip and 17″ from the shoulder to the bottom edge. The neck opening is round and measures 6″ in diameter.

This classic huipil is hand embroidered with the traditional Joyabaj circular design that radiates from the collar in a spectrum of colors. The caps on the sleeves have the same circular decoration. The background fabric is a brown woven cotton blend with tiny stripes of burgundy and green.

This huipil is in good used condition, with some wear on the embroidery especially at the neckline and on one of the sleeves. There is some loose stitching where the panels join. A lovely vintage textile!
