This striking huipil is from the area of Tecpán. This lovely huipil measures 31” across the shoulders, and 26″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is diamond shaped and if looked at as a square, each side measures 5″ in length.

This huipil has the more modern style for Tecpán and is beautiful with its bright colors and hand weaving that features a row full of wonderful flowers. The colors are shades of purples with bright green leaves. There are rows of animal accents and rivers represented by horizontal triangles throughout. The collar and sleeves are trimmed in beautiful burgundy velvet. The background fabric is heavy woven white cotton with royal blue accent stripes.

This huipil is in very good used condition with a few minor signs of wear. There are a couple of loose threads as well as some faint stains on the lower white section on one side and a loose loom effect due to the weaving of the extra thread back into the huipil on the other side.
