Chichicastenango --- Unusual flowered neckline on this Chichi huipil was finely embroidered by machine with nice velvet edging.  Bold Peacock and flowers brocaded into the weave. Three panels are of uneven length and are selvage finished with some looseness in three of the panels, including one center panel with "hose-like" runs.  Could easily be hemmed if you want even lengths.  Sides are open so can wear as poncho, or seam close if you prefer. One of side panels has black threads that have faded slightly differently and appear very dark brown rather than black (look at picture - not very noticeable). An interesting used huipil with great designs and in moderately good shape -- does have some fading and a few loose threads.

 Fitting Tips ---  Huipils were traditionally made on a loom. Thus they are made of rectangular pieces and are not intended to be a fitted garment.  The width of the garment should be considerably larger (at least 25 to 33%) than the shoulders of the wearer.  Think about room to grow too! Mayan women often put tucks in a huipil's shoulder then remove them as a child grows. 

Neck and head hole openings on Huipils are often small.  Note that we can not guarantee that the neck size of a Huipil fits you and your child.  If you want to wear some huipils you may have to open the neck opening and lightly stitch it. This is especially true of Huipils that have been woven on a back-strap loom.    Please check your neck and head measurements carefully!!!

Our Guarantee: We want you to be completely satisfied with our products.   If you are not, notify us within 30 days and return the item.  Depending on your choice we will refund your money (minus original cost of shipping) or give you a credit on another item.
