Huipil 49: Tactic

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

This is a pre-loved traditional huipil being sold by the weaver herself. This particular piece is special because while it may seem colorful to outsiders, the hues actually represent a muted top that is worn specifically when in mourning.

The three-panel style each handwoven with four selvages is typical of Tactic, Alta Verapaz, and makes for easy and beautiful wearing paired with high-waisted bottoms. 

Who knew so many colors would go so well together? We love the color combination for this huipil. Brocaded figures include women, paw prints (dogs), and more.

Handwoven and being sold by Elvira.

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


Material: Cotton 

Care: Gentle machine cycle and line dry. Colors will not bleed as the piece has been washed many times.


Width:  36 inches 

Length: 18  inches
