Super lightweight huipil from the Tactic region. This beautiful huipil measures 36″ across the shoulders, and 19″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 8 1/2″ in diameter.

This huipil is different with a very open style weaving that results in a gauze-like texture with hand weaving that features rows of ‘mayan stars’. The accent colors are green, purple and  blue. The background is an open-woven fabric in white cotton. Frequently this style of huipil (also like the huipiles from Coban) are worn untucked from the corte (skirt).

This huipil is in very good used condition, the only flaws being a couple of faint stains on the white background and the occasional loose thread. This is expected due to the delicate style of this weaving.
