San Juan la Laguna

Striking huipil from San Juan la Laguna. The collar is accented with the classic ‘sun’ design circling the neck opening that is most often seen in huipiles from Chichicastenango. This two lienzo huipil measures 34″ across the shoulders, and 17 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures approximately 5 1/2″ in diameter (small). The background fabric is a super soft deep burgundy-red woven cotton.

The accent around the collar is also red with a light cream color trim. This is also the same color scheme used down the center on both sides to join the panels. The background fabric is woven super fine and is buttery soft to the touch.

This is a very lovely huipil from San Juan la Laguna. It is in excellent condition with very little sign of wear.
