Exquisite satin design from the region of Aguacatán. This beautiful huipil is highly influenced by the Mexican style of huipil with a white background and lots of orange and red colors. This huipil measures 27 1/2″ across the shoulders, 19 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges. The neck opening is round and measures 5″ in diameter (very snug fit over avg head size). The sides have been stitched closed to create armholes.
This white satin huipil is elegant with its stunning hand-embroidered design around the collar in brilliant rainbow of colors.The fabric is a commercial satiny fabric that is wonderfully soft to the touch. The bodice is accented with appliqué and machine stitching throughout and finished with a delicate lace trim around the bottom edge.
This unique huipil is in good used condition, with a few loose threads and the appliqué is loose in a few places. There is some minor wear on the top of the sleeves (a couple of very tiny holes) due to the delicate nature of the material used in the huipiles of Aguacatán.
