854 San Mateo Ixtatan-2693San Mateo Ixtatán

Absolutely huge and stunning vintage huipil from San Mateo Ixtatán! This beautiful and rarely seen available huipil measures 46″ across the shoulders, and 27″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded) at the longest point. The neck opening is round and measures 6.75″ in diameter.

This huge huipil is breathtaking with its elaborate fully hand-embroidered design in brilliant colors of red, yellow, green, 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 collar is made from commercial fabric with added accents of various stitched on appliques. The lower edge of the huipil has been removed. This simple muslin fabric is usually the first to wear out.

Due to the colder climate of San Mateo Ixtatán huipiles from this area tend to be heavy and warm. These classic huipiles from San Mateo Ixtatán of this style are very difficult to come by.

This vintage huipil is in good used condition with areas of wear throughout, particularly at the collar and lower edge. This is a fantastic piece for display!
