Huipil 54: 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. All four selvages are meticulously finished on the loom, showing excellent mastery by the weaver.

This type of huipil (traditional blouse) is regionally worn with gathered flowy corte (wrap skirt), and the combination is really beautiful. But feel free to combine it with other kinds of skirts or jeans.

Brocaded figures include cotton birds, corn plants, and women. Handwoven and being sold by Elsa.

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

 

Material: Cotton


Care: Hand wash separately and line dry inside out. Colors should not bleed, but best to be gentle to preserve the brocade stitches.

 

Measurements:

Width:  37 inches
