Huipil 22: San Juan Cotzal

This gorgeous three-panel pre-loved traditional huipil from San Juan Cotzal is being sold by the weaver herself, who is a member of the cooperative of weavers from the town. What a stunning and exemplary piece this is! In particular, the neckline hand- embroidery is meticulous and very sweet with birds, flowers, and strawberries, bringing together so beautifully the detailed brocade figures woven throughout.

The neck opening is large enough to comfortably put on and take off without difficulty. The selvages at the bottom of the blouse are folded over and sewn by machine to prevent unraveling. 

Threads used are high-quality cotton and cotton blend.

This huipil is beautiful to wear and use as decoration as is or opened on the sides so that it can be laid flat. Please do not cut this handwoven gem as it is full of tradition and heritage.
