Lovely huipil with hand embroidered designs! It is from the town of Joyabaj. This striking huipil measures 31″ across the shoulders and 29″ across the chest, and 20″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 6 3/4″ in diameter with an addition 2 1/2″ slit to aid in pulling over the head. The sides have been stitched to create armholes.
This huipil is full of hand embroidered circles radiating from the neckline in the classic Joyabaj style. The sleeves are accented with similar designs and also have crochet trim along the edges. The woven background is a cotton-acrylic blend in dark brown with tiny red and green stripes.
This huipil is in good used condition, with little signs of wear, a few loose threads, and a tiny wear spot. A very striking huipil!
