886 Tactic celeste-4366Tactic

Beautiful blue huipil! This huipil is from the town of Tactic in the region of Alta Verapaz. This elegant huipil measures 30” across the shoulders, 25″ across the chest*, and 25″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is square and measures  5.25” along each of the four sides. The sides have been stitched to create armholes. *The sides of this huipil have been taken in substantially along the sides (3″+ on each side). If the stitching was removed it would make this huipil much larger.

This beautiful two-panel huipil is elegant with its light and dark blue texture weaving and stunning hand-guided, machine done embroidery across the chest. The embroidery features lovely flowers and a beautiful butterfly. There is some use of metallic thread in the embroidered design. The background fabric is a medium weight blue cotton.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with little sign of wear, perhaps loose threads, mainly around the neck opening. This is a lovely huipil, great for wear or display!
