Santiago Atitlan Woman's Huipil --- Hand embroidered Birds and flowers around the neck of this Santiago Atitlan Huipil. Lavendar base material hand-woven on backstrap loom with darker rose vertical stripes. Sides seams are closed with pleats that make illusion of "sleeves". Two bottom panels have selvage finish, others are hemmed. Small embroidered flowers around neck.
Condition: Moderately good used condition. The huipil shows some wear, a few loose threads and light spotting.
Width: 21 - 25 inches
Length: 25 inches
Neck: 9 inches wide by 4 inches deep. Fits over my 22" head, but would need to open armholes if I was to wear
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.
