461 Todos Santos Cuchumatán-0559Todos Santos Cuchumatán

Classic elegant huipil with beautiful colors from the town of Todos Santos Cuchumatán. This lovely huipil measures 34″ across the shoulders and 26 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is diamond shaped and measures 4″ along each of the four sides. 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 radiating lines of applique that is classic to the area. The sleeve openings are trimmed with a burgundy cotton with metallic applique on top. The collar has the same burgundy cotton accent. The background fabric is grey/black cotton with wine colored stripes.

This vintage huipil is in very good used condition. There are a few loose threads and one of the collar flower appliques is slightly loose. A wonderfully striking huipil!
