Girl's Huipil 8: 4-6yo
//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. This style is a bit uncommon in that the huipil was constructed by joining two handwoven panels horizontally, as opposed to the usual vertical joining. It is stunning with glossy brocade in rayon floss.
All four selvages are meticulously finished on the loom, showing excellent mastery by the weaver.
Traditionally, huipiles of this style from Alta Verapaz 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 4-6 years old well.
Brocaded figures include zig-zags, pepenados, seeds. Handwoven and being sold by Yesica.
Please note that modeled images were taken with a different smaller huipil, and she is 3 years old.
Material: Cotton blend
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.
Width: 25.5 inches
Length: 12 inches
