727 San Lucas Toliman-1400San Lucas Tolimán

Spectacular woven huipil from the area of San Lucan Toliman. This beautiful classic huipil measures 34″ across the shoulders, and 26″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures approximately 6″ in diameter. The sides are stitched, creating armholes.

 This huipil is exquisite with a hand woven pattern throughout the most smooth and soft background. The tiny geomorphic figures are woven into the background fabric. The design is alternating rows of of animals, mayan stars, and corn plants. It has a variety of colors including the predominant purple blue and red.  The collar and sleeve openings are trimmed in stunning clusters of grapes that are all hand embroidered. The bright white woven background is the most luxurious soft cotton.

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