San Juan la Laguna

Striking huipil from San Juan la Laguna. The collar is accented with the classic design circling the neck opening that is representative in huipiles from the area. This two lienzo huipil measures 38″ across the shoulders, and 24″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is oval shaped and measures approximately 7 3/4″ in length by 5 1/4″ in width.

The accent around the collar is a rainbow of colors embroidered in soft arti-seda thread that extends to the little squares below the neckline circle. The background fabric is a soft white woven cotton blend with wonderful color accents at the sides that are part of the woven background.

This huipil is in very good used condition with very little sign of wear. There is some very faint color variation in the background fabric and a slub in the original weaving near the shoulder. A spectacular textile for display or wear!
