652 San Mateo Ixtatan-1096San Mateo Ixtatán

Absolutely huge and stunning vintage huipil from San Mateo Ixtatán! This beautiful and rarely seen available huipil measures 49″ across the shoulders, and 29″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 7″ in diameter.

This huge huipil is breathtaking with its elaborate fully hand-embroidered design in brilliant colors of red, yellow, purple, fuchsia, and blue sewn on a simple muslin background. This is a very large and very heavy huipil with the design shown on both inside and out. The design has the round ‘suns’ radiating from the collar. The lower edge of the huipil is full of flowers and quetzals. It has the traditional collar design. Due to the colder climate of San Mateo Ixtatán huipiles from this area tend to be heavy and warm. This huipil weighs approximately 4 pound 10 ounces. Classic huipiles from San Mateo Ixtatán of this style are very difficult to come by.

This vintage huipil is in very worn used condition with areas of thread wear throughout and some discoloration and slight staining on the lower edges. There are some places along the lower edge where the background cotton muslin fabric has worn through. This is a fantastic piece for display!
