This daily huipil was hand woven on a backstrap loom in three panels. The center panel is heavily decorated with supplementary brocade featuring complex almost abstract geometric designs. The head hole is surrounded by a "collar" of appliqued rick-rack in typical Todos Santos style.
This one has quite a lot of supplementary brocade work and is in very good condition.
34" width x 29" length
