Santiago Sacatepéquez

Stunning Vintage Huipil from Santiago Sacatepéquez, the town famous for the giant kites of All Saints Day. Traditional raised woven style with beautiful colorful design. Fantastic texture and color! This huipil measures 29″ across the shoulders, 28″ across the chest, and 28″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is diamond shaped and each of the four sides measures approximately 5″ (fits over average sized head). The sides have been sewn to create armholes.

This two panel huipil is striking with elaborate raised weaving that gives this huipil a ‘nubby’ texture. The pattern includes mayan figures and quetzal birds (national bird of Guatemala) in a striking array of colors. The background fabric is a red and white checkered cotton.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with a few signs of wear. There are some areas with slight wear and reinforced stitching. There are also a few loose threads.
