Classic elegant huipil with beautiful deep colors from the town of Todos Santos Cuchumatán. This lovely huipil measures 31″ across the shoulders and 21 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is diamond shaped and measures 3″ along each of the four sides, with an additional 1 1/2″ tie-closed slit along each side. The sides have been sewn to create armholes.

This daily use vintage huipil is lovely with a simple and delicate woven design of tiny diamonds 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 teal velveteen applique. The collar has the same burgundy velveteen trim. The background fabric is black woven cotton.

This vintage huipil is in very good used condition. There are a few loose threads and a small amount of wear on the collar ties. A wonderfully striking huipil!
