Wonderful vintage Mayan Huipiles from Oxchuc, Chiapas. Incredible modern color palette on an very old and traditional design. A wonderful piece. Lots of hand embroidery. This one is interestingly kind of a hybrid huipil between the Oxchuc huipil and the huipil of the neighboring town of Cancuc. The base is the classic Oxchuc base but the the embroidery resembles that of Cancuc.
36" width x 27" length
