Three paneled white ceremonial huipil woven on a back strap loom. The piece is decorated with the feather serpent and zigzag designs on each panel, which (when the huipil is extended) will form the Mayan Cross with the Sun in the center (neck decoration). Cotton and silk threads are used to weave these brocade decorations. On both of the side panles European flowers are woven in. The neckline is cut out and decorated with hand embroidered silk thread symbolizing the sun. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping!
