Beautiful huipil from the Quetzaltenango/Xela region in Guatemala. This huipil measures 27 1/2″ across the shoulders, and 27″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 6” in diameter.

This huipil is a huipil de luto (mourning) generally worn after the death of a spouse or loved one; thus the extensive use of purple. It is a beautiful example of luto huipil that is not often seen for sale.

The colors are a sea of purple, black, and yellow/gold, with purple pansies cascading down the front and back and adorning the neckline. Joining the pansies around the collar are a sweet pair of hummingbirds on one side and a solitary hummingbird on the other. There are gathers on each side, giving it a slightly ruffled look, and the sides are closed, creating sleeve holes.

This huipil is in very good used condition. There is some slight wear in the form of a couple of loose threads and a slight amount of discoloration in the lower white section where the purple has faded into the white cotton. There is a very tiny hole on the lower white part where one of the gathers was pulled. It is perhaps 1mm in diameter; very difficult to notice.

Very lovely! Woven corte, or mayan skirt, indigo navy with white stripes with a row of 19 beautiful baskets of flowers! It is from the town of Quetzaltenango, also known as Xela. The corte is a wrap-around skirt that consists of a cut of cloth usually 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 elegant corte measures 43″ wide and 81″ long (laid flat). Cortes are generally sewn together to make a tube, but this one is not. It is a full flat piece of fabric.

This corte is beautiful with its accented design that is machine embroidered free-hand. The design runs the entire length on the 81” skirt. It is a series of light blue baskets overflowing with colorful flowers. Each flower basket is topped by a pair of hummingbirds and lightly accented by very thin gold thread. The hummingbird pair on each basket varies in color from basket to basket. They are absolutely beautiful! The corte has a seam, or randa, that runs the length of the fabric.

This corte is in excellent used condition, with very little sign of wear.

The lower white portion of the huipil has become a tad dingy in a few places. The colors of this huipil are still very brilliant and beautiful and the fabric is wonderfully soft.
