San Pedro Sacatepéquez

Very lovely hand woven huipil, accented with beautiful birds, zigzag rivers and mayan stars! It is from San Pedro Sacatepéquez. This large and elegant huipil measures 37″ across the shoulders, and 25 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 6″ in diameter. The sides are stitched to create arm holes, but can easily be unstitched 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 birds that are woven into the design. 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 with a sweet bird in the center. The sleeve caps are trimmed in a similar embroidered appliqué. 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 very good used condition, with some minor signs of wear. There are slight creases from the shoulders down the front and back where it was stitched to narrow the width of the huipil. This can be easily ironed out. There is a small amount of thread wear around the collar flower appliqué. This is a striking vintage textile.
