Tactic Huipil 2

//Euro Trunk Show item for September 2021, shipping from Austria to EU destinations//

This is a pre-loved traditional huipil from Tactic, Alta Verapaz, Guatemala. It was purchased directly from the weaver a few years back, from the same group that is now featured in our Artisan Direct section. The three-panel style with each panel handwoven with four selvages is typical of the town, and makes for easy and beautiful wearing paired with high-waisted bottoms. 

We think this is an especially "easy" piece to wear given the repeating patterns and the color choices. It fits like size M.

The neck opening is large enough for comfortable wearing. The bottom edges of the huipil have been folded in and stitched over for increased durability. The same goes for the sleeves. Please note that this piece shows some wear, notably there is a small hole that has been gently mended by hand.

 

Material: Cotton, some rayon blends for supplementary weft. The textile has a heavier weight due to the rich brocade.


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

Measurements (when laid flat):

Width: 34inches / 102cm

Length: 17inches / 44cm
