885 Santa Maria de Jesus-4354Santa Maria de Jesús

Very striking huipil in very good condition. This ceremonial styled huipil is from the town of Santa Maria de Jesús. This stunning huipil measures 28” across the shoulders, 27.5″ across the chest, and 22″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is square and measures 6″by 6″. The sides have had the stitching removed so that the huipil opens completely. It is fairly easy to restitch the sides  to create armholes.

This huipil is in the ceremonial Santa Maria style and is beautiful with its crisp colors and hand weaving that features traditional birds fully woven throughout. The colors are red and green, with accents in purple and pink. The background fabric is a medium weight white woven cotton blend with red stripes.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with very little sign of wear. Perhaps a few loose threads and some faint staining in the lower white section. A very unique find!
