Totonicapan Guatemala  
(Quiche) Mayan Huipils  and Textiles

Most Totonicapan Huipils are made on a treadle or foot loom. There are quite a number of styles and I am sometimes uncertain as to whether I am totally correct in assigning all these to Totonicapan.  There may made by Totonicapan weavers for other villages or aldeas or they may actually be made in other villages that have similar styles.

The Huipils we have for sale are pictured below, generally going from smaller sizes to larger sizes.  Click here to go directly to  * Infant & Small Child    *Girl     *Women.  Other fun stuff from Totonicapan:   Doll Clothes

Totonicapan -- This is a treadle (foot) loomed double paneled huipil. Base cloth is cotton. Decorated with fun flowers that are machine embroidered (somewhat it the Xela design). Pleats give the huipil some shaping and variation in width. Good used girls huipil with some even graying of white base material.

Totonicapan, Probably a new-style 2-panel huipil from Totonicapan.  This beautiful huipil (click on the picture - the thumbnail doesn't do it justice)  is back-strap loomed measuring 27" wide by 16" long.  Dark blue cotton foundation brocaded geometric designs using polished cotton and artificial silk embroidery floss.  All four edges of each panel nicely selvage-finished. Side seams are open so can use as poncho or easily stitched closed.  Good lightly used condition.

TOTONICAPAN BELTS


 
Totonicapan belts have incredible fine designs brocaded (woven) into the belt as it is made.  The whole belt is filled with these designs.  Common designs include birds (quetzals, ducks, roosters, peacocks...), people (munecas), buses and cars, horses, rabbits, pine trees, tree of life, stars, pitchers, cats and dogs and many other designs.  Sometimes "Totonicapan" is woven the belt or an abreviation "Toto".  Sometimes the name or initials of the person is included.  Every time I look I see something new.

One half of the belt is often cool colors (blue, greens, purples) and the other side warm colors (reds, yellows pinks, oranges... ).  So depending on your outfit (huipil) you can tie the belt in a way to match it or complement it.  Great idea!!!   You can see the different with the picture on top being the first few inches of the warm side of the belt, and the lower photo being the cool colored side of the belt.

When I measure the belt I only measure the decorated portion of the belt, not the braided end ties.
