Santiago Atitlán

UNIQUE!! Very stunning hand embroidered huipil, full of lifelike birds!! It is from the town of Santiago Atitlán on the shores of Lake Atitlán. This elegant huipil measures 31″ across the shoulders, and 26″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 6″ in diameter. The sides have had the stitching removed to open the arm holes, but can easily be restitched if desired.

This huipil is absolutely beautiful with elaborate hand embroidery that features lifelike birds perched on branches using a variety of colors of blue inspired by the lake waters. The collar is embroidered with rosettes of flowers. The woven striped cotton background is white with stripes of purple. Just amazing! This is a wonderful example of the incredibly beautiful huipiles of the Santiago Atitlán region.

This huipil is in great used condition, with minimal sign of wear. The white background has a few very faint stains.
