Description

This vintage huipil was handwoven by a Guatemalan artisan using a backstrap loom and is totally one-of-a-kind.

Each region of Guatemala has their own unique textile design. Like other aspects of the culture, the designs change with time. Guatemalan weavers identify the textile's age and origin by the design. This huipil is from the town of Santiago Atitlan, distinguished by its stripe warp weave and embroidered birds.

34.5 inches wide x 25 inches tall

sleeve openings are approximately 20 inches circumference and collar is approximately 23 inches in circumference.

This item has some imperfections due to its age and being handmade. Please see photos.
