Santo Tomás Chichicastenango ceremonial huipil.

This beautiful post-1980 huipil was hand woven on a back strap loom in three maroon cotton base panels. These panels are decorated with supplementary brocade in Silk and cotton. The center panel is wider and more extensively decorated. The motif is a plumed serpent motif. The sunburst collar is hand embroidered in silk over velvet and unique to Chichicastenango huipiles. An extraordinarily beautiful example that like so many things of beauty cannot quite be captured by the camera. The colors of the more close up photos are the most accurate with regards to the color of the huipil. I love this one.

The plumed serpent known as Kukulcan, meaning "the feathered serpent," is the Mayan’s supreme god. He was the god of the four elements, as well as a creator and the god of resurrection and reincarnation.

These are great year round. In the winter I wear them over a light sweater and they are super cozy.

Measures W32 x L29
