834 San Ildefonso Ixtahuacan-2588San Ildefonso Ixtahuacán

Beautiful hand woven vintage huipil from the region of San Ildefonso Ixtahuacán located in the department of Huehuetnango. These aren’t seen as often as they used to be. This huipil measures 28″ across the shoulders, 19.5″ across the chest, 17.5″ from the neckline to the bottom edge (folded). The neck opening is rectangular and measures 5″ x 3.5″ (smaller).

This striking huipil is woven with various multi-colored diamonds throughout the body. The collar area is accented with hand embroidered radiant circles that gives it almost a stained glass look. The neckline embroidery is done so that the design is the same inside and out. The areas where the panels join are also decorated in hand embroidery of colorful bugs. The background fabric is a medium weight woven white cotton.

This vintage huipil is in good used condition, with some loose loose threads throughout and wear in the hand embroidered designs. A beautiful textile for display or wear!
