524 San Antonio Aguas Calientes-0106San 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 nearby towns. This lovely huipil measures 31″ across the shoulders and 22″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 7 1/2”. The sides have had the stitching removed, so this huipil opens completely. The sides can easily be stitched closed to create arm holes for wearing.

This spectacular huipil has the traditional rows of zigzag mountains, triangular patterns of the rivers, and mayan stars. The intricate bird and 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.

This huipil is in very good used condition with little sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads. It is quite stunning for its color scheme and weaving!
