This is a very cool and unusual huipil with sleeves! T Hand woven on a back strap loom in two predominantly red cotton panels covered by a grid of stripes in various colors including a few metallic stripes. The sleeves are of the same fabric. The base material is decorated with supplementary brocade featuring several complex universal diamond designs. Traditional collar and cuffs. This tailoring is unique to Santiago Chimaltenango huipils and they are one of only two huipil styles in Guatemala that have sleeves. These huipils are increasingly rare and this is a fine example. Excellent condition
