784 Tactic-2300Tactic

Bright blue child’s huipil! This huipil is from the town of Tactic in the region of Alta Verapaz. This lovely little huipil measures 21” across the shoulders and 19″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is somewhat circular shaped (scalloped) and measures  5.5” in diameter. The stitching along the sides has been removed to allow this huipil to open fully.

This darling little three-panel tailored huipil is colorful with its mayan geomorphic designs throughout the body. The weaving is accented with traditional zigzag rivers the bodice. The colors are green, teal, pink, and blue. There is some use of metallic thread in this huipil. The background fabric is a medium weight royal blue cotton.

This huipil is in good used condition, with a little sign of wear in the form of some loose threads. This is a lovely little huipil, great for display!
