882 Nebaj-4219Nebaj

Very detailed smaller woven vintage huipil from the village of Nebaj. This lovely huipil measures 26″ across the shoulders, 26″ across the chest, and 26″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 5.25″ in diameter with an additional 2″ snap-closed slit to aid in pulling over the head (snug fit over adult head). The sides have been stitched to create armholes.

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 acrylic blend.

Additional photos can be found here.

This vintage huipil is in poor used condition with much sign of wear, including areas of open weaving and wear throughout. Wonderful designs in this huipil!
