Beautiful classic huipil from Chajul in a deep burgundy-red color! This super lovely huipil measures 30″ across the shoulders, 28″ across the chest, and 25″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is circular and measures 6″ in diameter. The sides have been sewn to create armholes.
This super soft, classic huipil is lovely with traditional geomorphic animal figures woven in stunning colors including artiseda threads on a rich burgundy-red cotton blend background. The design is classic for the town of Chajul with figures across the bodice on both sides; each side is a different color pattern. The shoulders and sleeves are accented with a coordinating geomorphic design. The threads in the designs are mostly lustrina with some use of metallic threads. The background fabric is medium weight, super soft woven cotton with fantastic weight and drape.
This huipil is in excellent used condition, with a few signs of wear, perhaps a few loose threads. A spectacular piece of art in a very unique color that can either be worn or displayed!
