Huipil - Chichicastenango, Woman's Large H_CC_17_01
Terra Experience Used Huipil Collection
Chichicastenago Woman's Huipil --- Really beautiful fine huipil. Striking geometric design and colors on this unusually fine brocaded woman's huipil. Back-strap loomed, traditional 3-panel construction with brown background (I am unsure if acrylic or cotton). Fine sun design embroidered around head hole. Embroidered randa between panels. Both brocade and sun embroidery, have fine lustrina (silk like).
Condition: Good used condition with a few loose threads. Selvages on all panels with some looseness along bottom of several of the selvages. Side seams are closed. As with many Chichicastenago huipils, there is some uneveness to the length of the panels. It could be hemmed to a even length, if desired. Easily fits over my 22" circumference head.
Width: 36 inches
Length: 25 inches
Neck: 6.5 inches wide by 3 inches deep and 2" 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.
