684 Santo Domingo Xenacoj-0633Santo Domingo Xenacój

This soft, color-filled huipil is from the area of Santo Domingo Xenacój. This beautiful huipil measures 35″ across the shoulders, and 23″ – 26″ (front is a bit longer than back) from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is rectangular in shape and measures 6″ by 7″. The sides have been stitched to create armholes.

This huipil is the most beautiful deep red colored background with the traditional animal and plant motif woven across the shoulders that is trademark of the Xenacój region. Part way down the front and back is a hand done decorative stitch that joins the panels, featuring tiny water jars. The background fabric is super soft woven cotton with stripes in accent colors.

This huipil is in excellent used condition with few signs of wear. Perhaps a few loose threads, and a slight amount of wear at the collar. A spectacular Xenacój huipil!
