Santiago Atitlan Woman's Huipil --- Beautiful hand embroidered birds and greenery around the neck of this Santiago Atitlan Huipil. White base material hand-woven on backstrap loom with marroon vertical stripes. Sides seams are open (could easily be sewn closed). Two of the bottom panel are selvage finished, the other two are hemmed.
Purchased from Antonio in 2017. Her neighbor's work.
Condition: Good used condition. The huipil shows some wear, a few loose threads and some greying and light spotting.
Width: 28 inches
Length: 25.5 inches
Neck: 6.5 inches wide by 3.5 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.
