Stunning huipil full of birds! This large huipil is from the town of Tactic in the region of Alta Verapaz. This lovely huipil measures 31” across the shoulders, and 21″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is diamond shaped and measures approximately 5 1/4” along each of the four sides.

This huipil is elegant with its beautiful pink birds throughout. The weaving is accented with tiny traditional mayan stars. The collar and sleeve are accented with free-hand machine embroidery of colorful flowers and trimmed with black crochet.

This huipil is in great used condition, with little sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads. This textile is beautiful for both display or wear!
