Terra Experience Used Huipil Collection

Regular price $60.00 Sale

Nahuala Woman's Huipil ---   The finely woven 2-panel huipil is made on a backstrap loom.  Maria told me the figure is a tiger. Also small geomorphic birds and animals in the very fine brocade (click on pictures for closeup). Indigo colored cotton with rose stripes.  

Condition:   Very good used.  No bleeding with light wear.  Two panels selvage finished, the other two hemmed.

Purchased from Maria in 2013.  Maria  told me  this daily use huipil was made by her sister (or sister-in-law) Paulablo Ismaac.

Huipil Dimensions: 

  • Width:  32 inches
  • Length:  23-26 inches
  • Neck:  5.5 inches wide by 3".  Scalloped style neck. Neck fits easily over my head.
* 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.
