Chajul Woman's Huipil --- Double headed horse or horses with birds on their back (maybe both) in the geometric design and bright colors on this brocaded woman's huipil. A few sparkly threads in the brocaded horses of this huipil. Base material is a rich wine red color. Double-panel huipil hand-woven on a back-strap loom with "Aleman" thread, making nice "soft texture".
Condition: Fairly good used condition with a few loose threads, even wear and a few light spots. Selvages on all panels with somewhat even lengths and some wear. Side seams are sewn closed. Note damage and reinforcement in closeup of neck below. Otherwise moderately good with light spotting and wear.
Width: 33 inches
Length: 23 - 24 inches
Neck: 7 inches wide by 3 inches deep
* Remember the huipil's width should be at least 1.5 to 2 times your shoulders width, to allow for fitting your frame and to cover part of your upper arms
