This two-panel huipil is colorful with its mayan geomorphic designs throughout the body. The weaving is accented with traditional deer, rivers, and mayan stars in the bodice.

This huipil is in excellent used condition, with little sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads. A fantastic textile for display or wear!
