San Pedro Sacatepéquez

Very lovely hand woven huipil, accented with beautiful flowers and fish! It is from San Pedro Sacatepéquez. This large and elegant huipil measures 35 1/2″ across the shoulders, and 24 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 6″ in diameter. The sides have had the stitching removed to open the arm holes, but can easily be restitched if desired.

This huipil is very beautiful with a hand woven pattern throughout the blouse. It includes the classic diamonds and triangles representing the mountains, rain, and rivers. The shoulders have rows of fish that are woven so that the design is the same on both the outside and the inside. The huipil has a rainbow of colors including the predominant pinks and purples. The collar has an appliqué of a ring of hand embroidered flowers in various colors. The sleeve caps are trimmed in soft royal blue velvet. The woven background is basic white cotton. This is a classic example of the incredibly beautiful huipiles of the San Pedro Sacatepéquez region.

This huipil is in great used condition, with minimal sign of wear. There is a small amount of thread wear around the collar and and on the flower appliqué. This is a striking vintage textile.
