This striking huipil is from the area of Tecpán. This lovely huipil measures 34 1/2” across the shoulders, and 25″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 7″ in diameter. The sides have been sewn to create armholes.

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, pinks and yellows with bright green leaves. There are rows of ducks and rivers represented by horizontal triangles throughout. The background fabric is heavy woven white cotton with red and black accent stripes. The thread is predominantly cotton.

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 discoloration on the lower white section on one side. Very lovely large huipil!
