786 San Antonio Aguas Calientes-2149San Antonio Aguas Calientes

Lovely huipil made in the style of the San Antonio Aguas Calientes area of Guatemala. This huipil measures 31″ across the shoulders, 29″ across the chest, and 23″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is 6″ x 7.5″. The sides have been stitched to create armholes.

This huipil was made in the classic design of San Antonio Aguas Calientes; as can be seen in the varying rows of lovely birds in a garden of flowers. The weaving, although not as finely detail as some others from the area, is done in the ‘doble cara’ style where the woven design is identical on both sides of the textile. The design is woven on a deep purple woven cotton base.

This huipil is in excellent used condition. There is some creasing where the sides had been taken in to make it narrower and perhaps a few loose threads. This is a beautiful textile for display or wear!
