San Pedro Sacatepéquez

Very lovely hand woven huipil, accented with beautiful flowers! It is from San Pedro Sacatepéquez. This elegant huipil measures 28 1/2″ across the shoulders, and 24″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 5 1/2″ 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. It has a rainbow of colors including the predominant purple. The collar and sleeve caps are free-hand machine embroidered with darling flowers and birds, 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 section of the velvet trim at the collar that has come loose.
