Comalapa ----- this 2-panel huipil was probably made on a treadle-loom. The huipil has a traditional red creya or stripe across its shoulders. It copies a somewhat older style with brown base, but like most Comalapa huipils it is made of a variety of primarily synthetic (acrylic?) thread. The panel edges are nicely hemmed.  In generally good condition with some loose threads and fading. It is shown on a friend of mine who is probably a woman's size 9 or 10.

   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.
