Girl's Huipil 11: 6-9yo

//A new Artisan Direct listing from our partners in Tactic!//

This is a pre-loved traditional huipil made specifically for a young girl, and it is being sold by the weaver herself. The three-panel style each handwoven with four selvages is typical of Tactic, Alta Verapaz, and makes for easy and beautiful wearing paired with all kinds of bottoms. All four selvages are meticulously finished on the loom, showing excellent mastery by the weaver.

This type of huipil (traditional blouse) is regionally worn with gathered flowy corte (wrap skirt), and the combination is really beautiful. 

Traditionally, huipiles of this style from Tactic are worn with high-waisted gathered corte, but we think these blouses are great to combine also with jeans and shorts. The loose fit is great for the active girl. 

We think this blouse would generally fit girls 6-9 years old well.  

Brocaded figures include loroco flower and seeds. Handwoven and being sold by Yesica.

Please note that modeled images were taken with a smaller huipil, and she is 3 years old.

Care: Hand wash separately and line dry or lay flat to dry inside out. Colors should not bleed, but best to be careful not to damage handwovens.
