769 Patzicia-1987Patzicía

Beautiful huipil from the Patzicía area of Guatemala. This detailed huipil measures 31″ across the shoulders, and 20 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is diamond shaped and each of the four sides measures 5”. The sides have been unstitched so that this huipil can be laid out open. The sides can easily be resewn to create armholes.

This huipil has the classic zigzag mountain and river 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 rich purple, 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 around the collar and a few loose threads as well as some slight color variations/fading from storage. Nothing to detract from this piece of art. A very striking huipil for wear display!
