Classic vintage huipil from the town of Todos Santos Cuchumatán. This lovely huipil measures 35″ across the shoulders and 27″ – 28″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is square and measures 5 3/4″ by 4 1/4″ (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 zigzag rivers and mountains throughout the bodice on both sides in a lovely aqua green color. 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 is trimmed with a black velvet/velveteen accent and the sleeve openings with black fabric. The background fabric is a rich aqua blue green striped cotton blend with a brighter green cotton panel in the center.

This vintage huipil is in great used condition. There are a few loose threads. A wonderfully detailed huipil!
