This beautiful post-1980 huipil was hand woven on a back strap loom in three white cotton base panels. These panels are decorated with supplementary brocade, all in cotton. Lovely pastel shades. The center panel is wider and more extensively decorated. The sunburst collar is hand embroidered in cotton over velvet and unique to Chichicastenango huipiles. This beautiful huipil in very good condition. Please note the stripes of discoloration that are as a result of some embroidery that has since been removed (the huipil was at some point made smaller and this was probably embroidery along the seam.)
Measures 32 wide x 24 long.
These are great year round. In the winter I wear them over a light sweater and they are cozy.
These beauties come from Burkina Faso and are truly vintage. They ooze the sweet vibe of previous owners The color and texture are gorgeous.
They are great cool weather wraps, They work as big scarf/hood, they look fabulous as a throw for the couch and would be lovely table cloths. I have several of these and each is slightly different so check out this section of my shop for more, to compare.
It measures 69x44" not including the fringe.
As, I mentioned these are truly vintage and it is typical for them to come well worn, it is part of what makes them special. This one is in very good vintage condition Please note that it is patched.
A gorgeous handwoven huipil from the Amuzgo people of Guerrero. It is made of hand spun cotton in its natural colors. Truly fine and masterful weaving and a very special garment. The brown and green colors are the natural colors of the native varieties of cotton called coyuchi and algodon verde. This huipil is a masterpiece of an accomplished artisan.
This one has these measurements: Chest 26" Length 33.5"
