Santiago Atitlan Woman's Huipil --- Finely hand embroidered rose and pink birds and greenery around the neck of this Santiago Atitlan Huipil. White base material hand-woven on backstrap loom with lavendar stripes. Sides seams are open (could easily be sewn closed). Two of the bottom panel are fringed.
Purchased from Maria. I believe woven for her daughter.
Condition: Good used condition. The huipil shows light wear, a few loose threads and light spotting.
Width: 30 inches
Length: 29 inches
Neck: 6 inches wide by 2 inches deep with 1" slit. Just fits over my 22" head
Weight: 1.5 lbs.
* 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.
