515 Santiago Chimaltenango-0232Santiago Chimaltenango

Striking blousa huipil from the area of Santiago Chimaltenango. Unique blouse style huipil worn only in two areas of Guatemala. This huipil is beautifully woven with stripes throughout the bodice with accent squares of Mayan geomorphic figures weaving across the chest, back, shoulders and sleeves. Simple open collar. This blouse-style with added sleeves is common for the areas of Santiago Chimaltenango and Sololá.

This huipil measures 24″ across the shoulders (not including the length of the sleeves), 25″ from the shoulders to the bottom hem, and the neck opening is a trimmed collar that measures 22″ in total circumference including a slit down the front that measures 5″ in length. The sleeves each measure 10″ in length.

This huipil is accented with acrylic blend thread designs on a woven red cotton background fabric. The accents are in a variety of pastel hued colors including greens, pinks, purples, lemon yellows, etc. Very lovely to look at! There are detailed geomorphic figures on the front and raised weaving featured below the collar.

Additional photos can be found here.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with two small worn areas, one on each end of the sleeves, but they do not detract from the beauty of this blouse!
