568 Joyabaj-0182Joyabaj

Unique 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 34″ across the shoulders, 25 1/2″ across the bottom edge (side to side), and 19″ from the shoulder to the bottom edge. The neck opening is round and measures 5 1/2″ in diameter (very tight to pull over adult head). The sides are tapered and have been stitched to create armholes.

This classic huipil is machine 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 textile!
