Santiago Atitlán

Very stunning lavender hand embroidered huipil, full of lifelike birds!! It is from the town of Santiago Atitlán on the shores of Lake Atitlán.

This huipil is absolutely beautiful with elaborate hand embroidery that features rows of lifelike birds using a variety of shade of white inspired by the reflections of the nearby lake waters. The collar is embroidered with red roses. The woven striped cotton background is light purple with stripes of dark purple. Just amazing! This is a wonderful example of the incredibly beautiful huipiles of the Santiago Atitlán region.

This huipil is in great used condition, with minimal sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads.
