Hupil Styles and Uses

  To my knowledge most Chajul huipils I find are daily use huipils.  The one distinct style is the Matrimonial Huipil  that some women tell me is also used by the confradia.

Notes on Thread and Condition

  THREAD --- I believe most of the chajul huipils I buy are what Mayan women call "Alemen".  It is a softer fine thread that has also been preferred in Patzun.  While the Mayan women consistently tell me the  "Alemen" is a fine cotton thread, I am confused.  Marilyn Anderson (1978) said that "Aleman" was a brand of red rayon thread that was imported from Germany and appeared to be no longer available. 

  I prefer to buy the "Aleman" huipils to the newer huipils that often have synthetic threads, probably acrylic, for their base material.

Its harder to figure out what the thread used in the brocade may be.  Depending on the Huipil it may be cotton, a synthetic thread or some combination of both.  Increasing there is a bit of  what the weavers call "brillante", a type thread with of metalic/plastic strand twined with cotton in the thread used to give a a little special shine or brilliance to the design of the brocade.  Usually only a few of the embroidery threads in the huipil are of this type. If the huipil includes "brillante" I have tried to indicate which colors have this type of thread. 

CONDITION  - Condition is somewhat a personal  consideration.  I try to describe condition as best I can to help you evaluate the huipil.   I encourage you to click on the small pictures to get a better view.  Unless noted all the huipils I buy are handmade on a back-strap loom and "used", thus artistic, unique and "not quite perfect".  If you are a perfectionist relative to condition probably look at ones in excellent or very good condition or "new" or "like new".   If you are like me and just like beautiful huipils at reasonable value - good to  moderately/reasonably good will probably work for you.  Lower cost huipils are likely to be fair to poor condition. "Fairly good" are in-between.  

I usually write my condition notes first, based on the descriptive terms that naturally come to mind.    This is my attempt to clarify what I probably meant when I wrote these terms.  I usually take into account age of the huipil and whether it was a child's huipil when describing condition.  For example a huipil woven 25 years ago or a 3-year old child's huipil might be expected to have more wear than a woman's  huipil that is only 5 years old.  

  • Excellent ---  Very little wear.  Used huipil in exceptional condition,  Probably not worn many times or a cherished piece that someone took very good care of.
  • Very Good ---  Light wear, no significant flaws.
  • Good ---  Might have light wear, maybe a few loose threads or light fading or very minor spotting.  ---- but nothing that bothers me.
  • Generally Good  --- would be good except for noted condition(s).   
  • Moderately or Reasonably Good  --- Maybe some wear, loose threads, light fading or a spot or two.. Salvages may have some looseness. This huipil was probably used on a daily basis and shows wear, but was reasonably well taken care of.
  • Fairly Good ---  Some flaws and wear. 
  • Fair ---   Conditional problems as noted or considerable wear.
  • Poor ---  Major conditional problems or significant wear.

I generally use terms like "fine", "nice",  to describe the quality of the original work or design rather than the current condition of the huipil.

 Fitting Tips ---  Huipils were traditionally made on a loom. Thus they are made of rectangular pieces and are not intended to be a fitted garment.  The width of the garment should be considerably larger (at least 25 to 33%) than the shoulders of the wearer.  Think about room to grow too! Mayan women often put tucks in a huipil's shoulder then remove them as a child grows. 

Neck and head hole openings on Huipils are often small.  Note that we can not guarantee that the neck size of a Huipil fits you and your child.  If you want to wear some huipils you may have to open the neck opening and lightly stitch it. This is especially true of Huipils that have been woven on a back-strap loom.    Please check your neck and head measurements carefully!!!

Our Guarantee: We want you to be completely satisfied with our products.   If you are not, notify us within 30 days and return the item.  Depending on your choice we will refund your money (minus original cost of shipping) or give you a credit on another item.
