Huipil 34: Tactic

This is a pre-loved traditional huipil being sold by the weaver herself. The three-panel style each handwoven with four selvages is typical of the Alta Verapaz region, and makes for easy and beautiful wearing paired with high-waisted bottoms. 

Look closely at the brocade, and you can see how it's different from the other huipiles from Tactic. The stitches are tucked in just like the gentle lace-like picbil weave practiced by our partner weavers in Chamelco.  The result is a soft and gentle brocade in that the colors of the weft are blended into the textile. Figures include deers, flowers, and more. Handwoven and being sold by Irma.

The neck opening is large enough for comfortable wearing. We think this piece fits like size M.
