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.

The detailed embroidery on the collar is flowers of pink, purple and yellow with matching patterns on front and back. One side of the collar features a butterfly. The other side of the collar shows two birds. The woven background is full of brilliant colors of yellow/gold, blue, and radiant purple. The sleeves and collar are trimmed with black crochet trim.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with little sign of wear. There is a small repair done by the original owner where the collar meets the woven body of the huipil, just below the right-hand bird. The color is a perfect match, and it is hardly noticable. The lower white portion of the huipil has become a tad dingy in a few places. The colors of this huipil are still very brilliant and beautiful and the fabric is wonderfully soft.
