San Antonio Aguas Calientes

Exquisite purple 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 29″ across the shoulders, and 23″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is scalloped shaped, and measures approximately 6” in diameter.

This spectacular huipil has the traditional rows of zigzag mountains, triangular patterns of the rivers, and many mayan stars. The intricate flower design at the shoulders is done in the very fine and detailed San Antonio weaving style, ‘doble cara’, where the pattern is identical both inside and out. The weaving is incredibly fine, causing this huipil to be wonderfully soft to the touch. This is a perfect example of the classic San Antonio Aguas Calientes design in an eye-catching purple color.

The sides of this huipil have been opened fully, but can easily be restitched to create arm holes for wearing. The lower purple panel on one side has a woven pattern of white accents on one half.

This huipil is in excellent used condition and is quite stunning for its color scheme and weaving.
