San Juan Sacatepéquez

Very interesting 25+ year old huipil in great condition. This 1980’s-1990’s huipil is from the town of San Juan Sacatepéquez. This lovely huipil measures 29 ” across the shoulders, and 27″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is diamond shaped and if looked at as a square, each side measures 5″ in length.

This huipil is beautiful with its deep colors and hand weaving that features the traditional animal motifs found in the huipiles of San Juan Sacatepéquez, but in this old style huipil the figures are ‘hidden’ in the super thick weaving. The colors are deep yellow-gold, blue, and red stripes with accents of burgundy, purple, and turquoise. The neckline and sleeves are accented with black crochet trim, accented with simple machine embroidered flower accents. Due to the thickness of the weaving, this huipil is fairly heavy.

This huipil is in excellent used condition, especially for its age, with very little sign of wear.
