Huipil 24: San Juan Cotzal

This is a very gently-worn piece in an unusual color combination. What a beautiful lime green  warp base it is! It has been tucked in on the sides to create "sleeves" which may be easier to wear for some people. Traditional brocade figures featured include birds, corn, and geometric shapes.

As all the traditional huipiles from this town listed on our site, this piece is being sold by the weaver herself. 

The 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.

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.
