755 Tactic-1779Tactic

Beautiful simple but large huipil! This crisp white huipil is from the town of Tactic in the region of Alta Verapaz. This lovely huipil measures 34″ across the shoulders, 27.5″ across the lower section, 21.5″ from the shoulders to the lower edge, and the head opening is 8″ x 8.5″ (generous). The sides have been sewn to create armholes.

This classic huipil is elegant with its simple design. The weaving is accented with tiny traditional mayan stars in purple, black, and green. The background fabric is a lighter weight woven cotton.

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