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 purple vertical stripes. Sides seams are closed with pleats that make illusion of "sleeves". Bottom panels have short fringe. Nicely finished neck line and arm holes. Arm holes have embroidered flowers decorating them.

Neck: 7 inches wide by 3 inches deep. Fits over my 22" 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.
