748 San Juan la Laguna-1614San Juan la Laguna

Unique huipil from San Juan la Laguna. This three lienzo huipil measures 33″ across the shoulders, 27″ across the chest, and 17 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded) with an addition 3″ tassel along the lower edge. The neck opening is square and measures approximately 6 1/2″ by 7″. The sides have been stitched to create armholes.

The simple yet elegant pattern is woven throughout the bodice on both sides in a lovely chocolate brown thread. The background fabric is a white woven cotton with predominantly teal blue and green stripes. There are tassels along both the front and back of the huipil. The sides have been taken in and stitched, but could easily be widened by removing the simple stitching along the sides

This is a very lovely huipil from San Juan la Laguna. It is in very good condition with very little sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads and a tiny faint stain in the lower section.
