449 Todos Santos rojo-0338Todos Santos Cuchumatán

Classic vintage huipil from the town of Todos Santos Cuchumatán. This lovely huipil measures 33 1/2″ across the shoulders and 23 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is square and measures 3 1/2″ by 3 1/2″ with additional tie-closed 2″ slits on each side of the opening. The sides have been sewn to create armholes.

This daily use vintage huipil is striking with delicate woven designs that feature mayan stars and zigzag rivers and mountains throughout the shoulders and bodice on both sides. This style of weaving leaves the loose ends on the inside, creating a shaggy lining that aids in warmth in the high mountain area. The huipil is accented around the collar with radiating lines of applique that is classic to the area. The neckline and shoulders are trimmed with a black cotton accent. The background fabric is a rich cranberry colored cotton.

This vintage huipil is in good used condition. There are a few loose threads and some very slight fading. A wonderfully detailed huipil!
