Beautiful classic vintage huipil from Chajul in striking white! This super lovely huipil measures 33″ across the shoulders, 33″ across the chest, and 19″ from the neckline to the bottom edges. The neck opening measures 7″ x 7″. The sides have had the stitching removed so this huipil opens up completely. The sides can easily be stitched to create armholes.
This super soft, classic huipil is lovely with traditional geomorphic animal figures woven on a white woven background. The design is a mix of deep rich colors. The design is classic for the town of Chajul with figures of birds across the bodice on both sides. The shoulders and sleeves are accented with a coordinating geomorphic design. The background fabric is medium weight, super soft woven white cotton.
This huipil is in good used condition, with a few signs of wear, perhaps a few loose threads and a couple of faint stains on the lower bodice. A spectacular piece of art that can either be worn or displayed!
