Unique special occasion huipil from Santa Maria de Jesús. This striking and different huipil measures 31 ½” across the shoulders, and 26 ½” from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is more or less square and measures 5 ½” in each of the four sides.

This striking huipil is lovely in its predominately deep-red and green design woven with arti-seda thread giving it an iridescent feel. The bodice is filled completely with a double-headed eagle design and accented with the more common (from Santa Maria de Jesús) diamonds across the shoulders. This elegant piece has accent colors of purple, blue, and pink. The collar and sleeves are trimmed with a simple black crochet and the neckline is trimmed on the inside with coordinating purple cotton. The all arti-seda design is woven on a medium to heavy black cotton background. The weaving on this piece is so fine, that the design is completely reversed on the inside of the huipil.

This huipil is in excellent used condition (as if new) and there are no visible signs of wear.
