820 Patzun-2547Patzún

This flower filled vintage huipil is from the area of Patzún. This lovely huipil measures 28″ across the shoulders, 28″ across the chest*, and 21.5″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is more or less round and measures 6.5″ in diameter. The sides have been stitched to create arm holes. *The sides have been taken in approximately 1.5″ on each side. If let out, the huipil would be wider.

This huipil is a rich deep burgundy color accented with light multi-colored stripes and has an exquisite flower garden around the collar that is trademark of the Patzún region. The flowers are all hand embroidered in wonderful shades of lavenders, yellows, and pinks. There are very tiny accents of metallic threads in some of the flowers. The background fabric is soft woven cotton. This huipil is wonderfully soft to the touch.

This vintage huipil is in very good used condition with a little sign of wear, a few loose threads and some wear at the sleeve openings and a few tiny places in the bodice. A spectacular piece for wear or display!
