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.
