Vintage Huipil from San Antonio Sacatepequez (San Marcos Municipalidad, Mam Language)

Use: Traditional dress of female Mayans. Can be used further as clothing, anwall hanging or a textile for up-cycling into a new piece of art.

Style/History: Backstrap weave of cotton and sedalina with delicate supplementary work that make this village much sought after- floral arrangements punctuated by bands of pulsating color (100% handmade).

The method of production is the most time-consuming and produces the most durable fabrics. This is a vintage huipil, approx. 25 years old.

Approx. Size: 33" across x 23" long. (Fits a medium/small woman of average build)

Condition: Vintage, worn, but very good. Please see photos, use zoom... there are no major blemishes or flaws. A few loose threads.
