567 Todos Santos Cuchumatan-0247Todos Santos Cuchumatán

Classic vintage huipil from the town of Todos Santos Cuchumatán. This lovely huipil measures 30″ across the shoulders and 21″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 4 1/2″ in diameter with additional snap-closed 3″ slits on each side of the opening (tight to pull over adult head). 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 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 velvet/velveteen accent. The background fabric is a rich cranberry colored cotton i the center and striped blue fabric on the outer panels.

This vintage huipil is in good used condition. There are a few loose threads and some very slight fading throughout the bodice. The neck opening shows typical wear of a vintage textile. A wonderfully detailed huipil!
