Tactic

Super lightweight huipil from the Tactic region. This beautiful huipil measures 30″ across the shoulders, and 24″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 7″ in diameter.

This huipil is different with a very open style weaving that results in a guaze-like texture with brilliant hand weaving with satin soft thread that features rows of ‘mayan stars’. The accent colors are glowing jewel and pastel colors of greens, pinks, blues, purples, yellows and more! The background, open-woven fabric is a deep brick-red cotton. There is an added piece of fabric around the bottom to extend the length of this huipil. Frequently this style of huipil (also like the huipiles from Coban) are worn untucked from the corte (skirt). This extra fabric was added so that the wearer can tuck the huipil into their skirt. It would be easy to carefully remove this extra fabric if one wishes.

This huipil is in very good used condition, the only flaws being the occasional pulled or loose thread. This is expected due to the delicate style of this weaving.
