773 Todos Santos Cuchumatan-2214Todos Santos Cuchumatán

Classic elegant huipil with beautiful soft colors from the town of Todos Santos Cuchumatán. This lovely larger huipil measures 35″ across the shoulders, 33″ across the chest,  and 31″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is slightly oval shaped and measures 7.5″ x 4.5″. The sides have been sewn to create armholes.

This daily use vintage huipil is striking with delicate woven designs that feature very tiny designs 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 purple velveteen trim and radiating lines of applique that is classic to the area. The sleeve openings are trimmed with black velveteen. The background fabric is white medium weight cotton blend with faint blue accents, it looks almost a ‘winter white’.

This vintage huipil is in great used condition, with little sign of wear. A wonderfully striking huipil!
