Chichicastenago Woman's Huipil --- Striking geometric design and colors on this brocaded woman's huipil. Back-strap loomed, traditional 3-panel construction with black background. Sun design embroidered around head hole. Embroidered randa between panels. Purchased from Maria in 2016.
Condition: Good used condition with a few loose threads. Light even fading of black background (probably cotton). Selvages on all panels with some looseness along bottom of several of the selvages. Side seams are open (could be easily sewn closed). Fairly even panel lengths. Fits over my 22" circumference head.
Width: 34 inches
Length: 28 inches
Neck: 5 inches wide by 2.5 inches deep plus 3.5" 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.
