Chichicastenago Woman's Huipil --- Striking geometric design and colors on this finely woven, brocaded woman's huipil. Back-strap loomed, traditional 3-panel construction with black background (not sure if cotton or acrylic). Sun design embroidered around head hole. Embroidered randa between panels. Purchased from Maria in 2016.
Condition: Good used condition with a few loose threads. . Tight selvages on all panels. Side seams are open (could be easily sewn closed). Like many Chichicastenango huipils somewhat uneven panel length (could be hemmed even if desired).
Width: 33 inches
Length: 27 - 30 inches
Neck: 5 inches wide by 2.5 inches deep plus 1.5" Slit
* 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.
