887 Santa Maria de Jesus-4387Santa Maria de Jesús

Lovely and unique huipil in wonderful condition. This ceremonial styled huipil is from the town of Santa Maria de Jesús. This stunning huipil measures 33.5” across the shoulders, 28″ across the chest*, and 24″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is square and measures 5.75″by 5.75″. The sides have been stitched to create armholes. *The sides of this huipil have been taken in substantially along the sides (3″+ on each side). If the stitching was removed it would make this huipil much larger.

This huipil is in the ceremonial Santa Maria style and is beautiful with its crisp colors and hand weaving that features traditional two headed eagles, feathered serpents, birds, as well as classic mayan stars that run across the shoulders. It is fully woven. 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 great used condition, with very little sign of wear. Perhaps a few loose threads and some very faint discoloration. A very unique find!
