Huipil 67: San Juan Cotzal

//This is a One-of-a-Kind artwork listed on our Artisan Direct section, brought to you straight from the weavers.//

What a stunning garment from San Juan Cotzal! This is a great find for those of you looking for a longer huipil.

This pre-loved piece is being sold by the weaver herself, who is a member of the cooperative of weavers from the town. Filled with supplementary weft brocade figures, this piece blends the colors very nicely, full of brocaded birds. Each pattern carries a unique traditional meaning. See what the weavers said about them here on our blog.

The neck opening is a bit snug but physically still large enough for Sucy to put on and take off without difficulty, adorned with meticulous hand-embroidery. One of the selvages at the bottom of the blouse are folded over and sewn by machine to prevent unraveling.

This huipil is beautiful to wear and/or use as decoration. Please do not cut this handwoven gem as it is full of tradition and heritage.
