Patzicía 378-0521Patzicía

Sweet young girl’s huipil from the Patzicía area of Guatemala. This smaller huipil measures 27″ across the shoulders, and 16″ – 17″ (back shorter than front) from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is diamond shaped, and each side measures 4 1/4”. The seam in the center has been opened approximately 1″ in both the front and back in order to make the opening a bit larger. This can easily be restitched. The sides have been stitched closed to create armholes.

This huipil has the classic geomorphic shapes throughout the bodice that is the style of huipiles from Patzicía. The accents are in a rainbow of colors. They are woven on a super soft deep burgundy, striped cotton background fabric that is very popular in the Patzicía and Patzun areas. This super soft weaving is of a medium weight.

This huipil is in very good used condition. There is very slight wear and a few loose threads. Nothing to detract from this piece of art. A very darling huipil for a young girl to wear or for display!
