448 San Antonio Palopo-0333San Antonio Palopó

Like new crisp blue huipil from San Antonio Palopó in the Lake Atitlán area. This striking huipil has clean lines and colors that reflect the turquoise colored waters of the lake. This huipil measures 32 1/2″ across the shoulders, 33 1/2″ from the shoulders to the bottom hem, and the collar is rectangular and measures approximately 4″ x 6″. The sides have been sewn to create armholes.

Huipiles from San Antonio Palopó are woven on a foot loom by men, and then decorated with accents by women. This simple yet elegant huipil has a lovely multi-shade purple and white accent decoration around the collar and half way down the front and back where the panels are joined. There is a simple blanket stitch along the bottom edge on one side and the other side has a cute short fringe.

This huipil is in excellent condition and has very little sign of wear.
