Classic elegant huipil with beautiful colors from the town of Todos Santos Cuchumatán. This lovely huipil measures 31″ across the shoulders and 26″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is square and measures 2 3/4″ by 4″ with an additional tie-closed 3″ slit on one 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 flowers of applique that is classic to the area. The sleeve openings are trimmed with a green velvet accent and the collar with black velvet. The background fabric is black cotton.

This vintage huipil is in very good used condition. There are a few loose threads and some very slight wear of the edge of the velvet trim on the sleeve openings. A wonderfully striking huipil!
