Tecpán

Tecpán

Beautiful purple huipil from the town of Tecpán. This soft huipil measures 28″ across the shoulders, and 23″ from the shoulders to the bottom hem. The collar is diamond shaped and each of the four sides measures 5″.

This simple yet elegantly woven huipil features purple to pink zigzags of rivers throughout the body on a very dark navy background. The colorful accent is hand-guided machine embroidery that highlights the collar, shoulders, and flows down both the front and back of the lovely textile. The collar and shoulders are trimmed in royal blue velvet.

This huipil is in very good used condition; with perhaps a few loose threads.

San Mateo Ixtatán

San Mateo Ixtatán

VERY HARD TO FIND in rare green color! Beautiful vintage huipil from San Mateo Ixtatán in the northern region of Huehuetenango in Guatemala. These are becoming very, very difficult to find! Very large lovely hand woven huipil, accented with circles and sunbursts throughout. This amazing huipil measures 26″ across the shoulders, and 34 1/2″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 7″ in diameter. The sides are stitched closed to create the arm holes, but can easily be unstitched if desired.

This huipil is very beautiful with a hand woven pattern throughout the blouse. It includes the classic sunbursts in reds, greens, and yellows with accents of blues and oranges. This huipil from the northern part of Guatemala shows some similarity with the colors seen in Mexican huipiles. But because of the remote location of San Mateo Ixtatán, it truly has a style and design of its own. The woven background is simple double-layer white cotton muslin. This is a rare chance to have such a beautiful huipil.

This huipil is in very good used condition for its age, with minimal sign of wear. There are a few loose threads, but the style of embroidery lends itself to have what appears to be loose threads, but actually are the ends of the embroidery floss that have come ‘untucked’. There is some slight discoloration in the muslin fabric, but it blends with the normal variation in the natural colored fabric.

Santa Maria de Jesús

Santa Maria de Jesús

Woven corte, or mayan skirt, indigo navy with white stripes and rows of flowers! It is from the town of Santa Maria de Jesús. The corte is a wrap-around skirt that consists of a cut of cloth usually joined to form a tube into which the woman steps. Excess material is wrapped around the body and folded at the waist in pleats, and tied with a faja (belt).

This elegant corte measures 41″ wide and 53″ long (laid flat). Cortes are generally sewn together to make a tube, but this one is not. It is a full flat piece of fabric.

This corte is beautiful with its accented design that is common for the Santa Maria de Jesús region. It has a seam, or randa, of flowers in yellow and green that runs the length of the corte and one that runs the width.

This corte is in good used condition, and very soft, with a few signs of wear and gentle fading of the dark blue fabric.

San Mateo Ixtatán

San Mateo Ixtatán

Striking design from the very remote town of San Mateo Ixtatán in the Guatemalan department of Huehuetenango. This vintage tzute is actually a huipil that has not been finished. New huipiles are generally purchased by their owners unfinished. They then decide what style and decoration they want for the collars and sleeves. This beautiful ‘unfinished’ huipil has many uses, from carrying items to wearing folded on the head. This tzute measures 32″ wide and 59″ long.

This tzute is lovely with its hand-embroidered design in brilliant colors of red, yellow, purple, black, and blue sewn on a simple muslin cotton background. The design has the round ‘suns’ radiating from the center as the traditional design from San Mateo Ixtatán.

This tzute is in very good used condition for its age, with a few minor signs of wear. There is a slight discoloration in some areas of the muslin and a couple of marks left from where the artist outlined their woven design.

Zunil

Zunil

Lovely woven corte, or mayan skirt, full of  flower vases with mayan figures! It is from the town of Zuníl. The corte is a wrap-around skirt that consists of a cut of cloth joined to form a tube into which the woman steps. Excess material is wrapped around the body and folded at the waist in pleats, and tied with a faja (belt).

This wonderful and striking corte measures 87″ long and 45″ wide from side to side as shown in the photo. Cortes are sewn together to make a tube. This corte has had the stitching joining the sides of the tube removed, and measures approximately 45″ by 87″ laid out flat. The center embroidery runs the full length of the 87″. This corte is fairly thick and heavy.  The background is black cotton woven fabric. The embroidered roses are machine done free-hand, and are truly an art form. Just amazing!

This corte is in great used condition, with perhaps a few loose threads, but very little sign of wear.
