706 San Lucas Toliman-0903San Lucas Tolimán

Super elegant woven huipil from the area of San Lucan Toliman. This beautiful classic huipil measures 30″ across the shoulders, and 26″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures a generous 6 3/4″ in diameter. The sides have had the stitching removed, but can easily be stitched to create armholes. There is a small tack of thread at each of the sleeve openings.

 This huipil is very beautiful with a simple woven pattern throughout. There are rows of delicate horizontal stripes accented with metallic thread. The beautiful flower embroidery on the front and back are hand-guided machine done. The collar and sleeve openings are trimmed with teal crochet accent. The woven background is light blue with purple and teal stripes in a soft acrylic blend thread. There is quite a bit of accent with metallic thread throughout the huipil. The weight and softness of the textile makes it drape beautifully.

This huipil is in excellent used condition, perhaps a few loose threads. This is a stunning textile!
