Modern Huipil from Coban! Fantastic texture and brilliant blue color! This huipil measures 31 1/2″ across the shoulders, 22″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is diamond shaped and measures 5 1/2″ in length on each of the four sides.

This huipil is striking with an iridescent blue woven base with diamond accents in various colors. The background fabric is heavy woven black cotton. The unique part of this huipil is the thread used for weaving the colors is a lustrina type thread, which is very fine and shiny, not like many of the acrylic threads commonly used.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with little sign of wear. Perhaps some loose threads.

Very lovely! Woven corte, or mayan skirt, black with white stripes and silver thread! It is from the town of Coban. The corte is a wrap-around skirt that consists of a cut of cloth joined to form a tube into which the woman steps. Excess material is wrapped around the body and folded at the waist in pleats, and tied with a faja (belt).

This wonderful and striking corte measures 40″ wide and 82″ long (doubled). Cortes are sewn together to make a tube. This corte has the opening at the sides as shown in the picture of the corte hanging. If the stitching joining the sides of the tube were removed, this fabric would measure approximately 40″ by 164″ laid out flat. There is an extra matching piece of fabric added at the bottom of the corte (on the width to make it 40″wide) to make it longer for taller women. This corte is fairly heavy due to its length; it weighs 2 1/2 pounds.

This corte is beautiful with its simple design that is common for the Coban region. The photos do not show how beautiful this corte is.

This corte is in great used condition, and very soft, with very little sign of wear.

Hand embroidered gorro or cap for a child. From the Coban region of Guatemala. It is crafted using the same techniques that artisans use to make huipiles. The flower adornment is the same found on huipiles of the Coban region. This textile is made from one woven panel that measures 27″ long by 9″ wide. The stitching that ran along one edge to form it into the cap has been removed, but is very easily replaced.

This gorro has elaborate hand embroidery that features pastel colored flowers in rows along the length of the fabric. These beautiful flowers are created by twisting the yarn on the surface of the fabric and then tacking it back down from the underside. The colors are pinks, purples, blues, yellows, and oranges with green for the leaves. They are sewn on a black cotton background.

This gorro is in excellent condition, with no signs of use.
