The neck opening is measures 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ (snug fit over adult head). The sides have had the stitching removed to allow the huipil to open completely, but can easily be restitched to create armholes if desired.
This huipil features extensive and elaborate weaving of geomorphic figures including various birds, deer, and people that are representative for the area of Nebaj. The colors are a variety of greens, burgundy, and blues. The background is white cotton.
This vintage huipil is in good used condition with a some sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads, and few very faint stains. A very elegant piece, perfect for display or wear!
