739 San Antonio Palopo-1498San Antonio Palopó

Spectacular teal colors! Like new, large and crisp teal-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 33″ across the shoulders, 34″ from the shoulders to the bottom hem, and the collar is round and measures a generous 7″ in diameter. 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 accent decoration around the collar and beautiful hand embroidered designs half way down the front and back where the panels are joined. There is a simple zigzag stitch along the bottom raw edge.

This huipil is in excellent condition and has very little sign of wear. The colors of this huipil make it stunning for either display or wear!
