782 San Lucas Toliman-2226San Lucas Tolimán

Elegant vintage woven huipil from the area of San Lucan Toliman. This beautiful classic huipil measures 31″ across the shoulders, 29.5″ across the chest, and 27.5″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). This includes the approximately 7″ of border on the lower edge. The neck opening is rectangular and measures a generous 5.5″ by 6″. The sides are stitched, creating armholes.

 This older huipil is very beautiful with a simple woven pattern throughout. The tiny geomorphic figures are woven into the background fabric. It has a variety of colors in the accent threads. The woven background is a super soft cotton with golden flax tones and stripes of purple and various other colors. There is an added lower edge of commercial fabric that can easily be removed if desired. It was added to allow this huipil to be tucked into the corte/skirt while wearing. This is a wonderful example of the classic style huipiles of the San Lucas Toliman region.

This huipil is in excellent used condition, perhaps a few loose threads. Wonderfully soft and lightweight with fantastic and bright colors. This is a stunning vintage textile!
