Very detailed woven vintage huipil from the village of Nebaj. This striking huipil measures 30″ across the shoulders, and 24″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 9 1/2″ in diameter. The sides have been stitched to create arm holes.

This huipil features extensive and elaborate weaving of geomorphic figures including various birds, deer, and people that are representative for the area of Nebaj. The colors are a variety of greens, burgundy, and blues. The background is white cotton. The collar and sleeve openings have been trimmed with simple burgundy stitching.

This vintage huipil is in great used condition with little sign of wear, with a few loose threads, and a very faint stain on the white background fabric. A very elegant piece, perfect for display or wear!
