San Raimundo (Raymundo) Guatemala (Cakchiquel/Kaqchikel) Mayan Huipils & Textiles   

San Raimundo is a neighboring Cakchiquel-speaking municipality to San Juan Sacatepequez.  Both towns like bright colors with strong designs and I have seen similar huipils attributed to both. The stripes on the San Raimundo usually are narrower with red and orange stripes making a stronger statement than in San Juan huipils. Other stripe colors are often mauve, yellow-gold and sometimes a rich brown, The huipil often has designs of feathered serpents and sometimes little birds ("pajarito") and corn stalks brocaded into its woven fabric. Also attributed to San Raimundo are solid colored huipils with similar brocading. They seem to be less common and may actually come from a neighboring small town (aldea). All huipils are hand-woven on a back-strap loom.

The Huipils we have for sale are pictured below, generally going from smaller sizes to larger sizes.  They are used, daily use huipils unless otherwise indicated.

   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!!!
