Santiago Atitlán

Very unique hand woven huipil with hand embroidery and crochet flower accents! It is from the town of Santiago Atitlán on the shores of Lake Atitlán.

This huipil is very nice with extensive hand embroidery and crochet that feature flowers on the front and back as well as along the shoulders. The collar and randa are hand embroidered with the same heavy thread used on the flower designs. The woven striped cotton blend background is pale blue/purple with stripes of dark blue/purple in an unique open weave style.

This huipil is in fair used condition, with visible signs of wear in the bottom part. The sides on the lower section have been cut open to allow expansion over the hips. This part is well below the bodice design and could be easily repaired or hemmed to hide the rough edges.
