Huipil 51: Tactic

//A new Artisan Direct listing from our partners in 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 Tactic, Alta Verapaz, and makes for easy and beautiful wearing paired with high-waisted bottoms. 

We love the color combination with such an elegant black base for this huipil. Brocaded figures include maxán leaves (used to cover tamales), cotton flowers, and more. The bottom selvage creates a lovely brocade edge, and it is folder inside for additional structural strength.

Handwoven and being sold by Flori.

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


Material: Cotton blend

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


Width:  37.5 inches 

Length: 20  inches
