//This is a One-of-a-Kind artwork listed on our Artisan Direct section, brought to you straight from the weavers.//

A stunning traditional güipil with a modern color combination! We love the pink and mint green together. It is incredible to think about the amount of work put into this richly-brocaded textile treasure.

This pre-loved piece is being sold by the weaver herself, who is a member of the cooperative of weavers from the town. Filled with supplementary weft brocade figures, this piece blends the colors very nicely, full of brocaded birds. Each pattern carries a unique traditional meaning. See what the weavers said about them here on our blog.

The neck opening generous in size and easy for Sucy to put on and take off the garment without difficulty. Some of the selvages are cleanly finished on the loom (woven), and others have been cut and then secured with machine stitching.

This huipil is beautiful to wear and/or use as decoration. Please do not cut this handwoven gem as it is full of tradition and heritage.
