436 San Antonio Aguas Calientes-0219San Antonio Aguas Calientes

Exquisite 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 28″ across the shoulders, and 23″ – 25″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is diamond shaped, and measures approximately 5 1/4” on each of the 4 sides.

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 blue and green color.
