Large vintage huipil from the San Martín Sacatepequez region of Guatemala, also know as San Martín Chile Verde. This larger huipil measures 33″ across the shoulders, 27″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 5″ in diameter with an additional 3″ slit on the side to allow it to easily pull over the head. The sides have been stitched, creating arm holes for wearing.

This huipil is beautiful with elaborate weaving that features various pastel-colored birds, corn plants, and mayan stars throughout the body. It is decorated with a hand embroidered collar of flowers at the neckline and a hand sewn randa down the front and back. The neckline and sleeves are trimmed in lavender velvet. The background fabric is a woven white cotton.

This vintage huipil is in good used condition, with some sign of wear in the form of some loose threads in the bodice and some wear on the randa stitching. A wonderful large textile with stunning colors!
