San Antonio Aguas Calientes

Classic daily use huipil made in the town of San Antonio Aguas Calientes. This area is known for its incredibly detailed weaving that is frequently copied in other nearby towns. This beautiful huipil measures 35″ across the shoulders, and 23″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is rectangular shaped, and measures 5 1/2” x 6″.

This very lovely huipil has the traditional rows of zigzag rivers, mayan stars, and elegant hummingbirds adorning the chest. The dancing fish design at the shoulders and the hummingbirds on the chest are done in the very fine and detailed ‘doble cara’ San Antonio weaving style where the pattern can be seen both inside and out. The weaving is incredibly fine, causing this huipil to be wonderfully soft to the touch. The collar and shoulders are trimmed with a simple black crochet. This is a perfect example of the classic San Antonio Aguas Calientes design in wonderful condition.

The colors are a full spectrum of green, blue, orange, red, yellow and much more. The design is woven on a deep burgundy woven cotton base.

This huipil is in great used condition. There may be some slight wear in the form of a few loose threads.
