457 Todos Santos Cuchumatán-0525Todos Santos Cuchumatán

Classic vintage huipil with wonderful colors from the town of Todos Santos Cuchumatán. This lovely huipil measures 29″ across the shoulders and 23″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is square and measures 2 1/2″ by 4″ with additional tie-closed 2 1/4″ 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, flowers and zigzag rivers throughout the 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 triangles of applique that is classic to the area. The sleeve openings are trimmed with a purple cotton accent. The background fabric is a rich turquoise colored cotton.

This vintage huipil is in very good used condition. There are a few loose threads and some very slight fraying at the sides of the neck opening. There is a tiny cut through part of the fabric at the bottom on one side. A wonderfully detailed huipil!
