Very stunning embroidered huipil, full of beautiful birds in a colorful garden! It is from the town of Santa Maria de Jesús. This striking huipil measures 30″ across the shoulders and 27 1/2″ across the chest, and 27 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is rectangular and measures a very generous 7″ x 8″. The sides have been stitched to create armholes.
This huipil is absolutely beautiful with brilliantly colored embroidery that features birds, flowers, and fish on each side of the huipil in a flower garden. The colors are glowing jewel colors! The background is a black commercial fabric. The embroidery is all machine done free-hand, and is truly an art form. Just amazing! This is a wonderful example of the incredibly beautiful ‘fiesta’ huipiles of Santa Maria de Jesús.
This huipil is in very good used condition with little sign of wear, such as a few loose threads in the bodice embroidery. A truly exquisite textile!
