San Martin Jilotepeque

Simple yet elegant daily use huipil from the San Martin Jilotepeque region in Chimaltenango, Guatemala. This huipil measures 33″ across the shoulders, and 21 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is square and measures 5 1/2” x 6″.

The colors are black and  burgundy with lilac and white.  The sides are closed, creating sleeve holes. This huipil has predominantly acrylic woven thread on a cotton background that is faint lilac in color with a white lower section. It is soft and lightweight, making it comfortable to wear.

This huipil is in very good used condition. There are a few loose threads. There is very slight fading of the lilac background throughout the bodice. There are faint creases in the fabric where the huipil was gathered and sewn to make it smaller.
