Huipil of two canvases with a V-neck neckline, woven on a waist loom with industrial cotton by the groups “Cuatro Rombos” and “Jalab Antsetik” using the fraying and brocade technique called "xchilul" with which the artisans weave traditional motifs of Cancuc across the canvas. When finished, the two canvases are joined with a stitch known to weavers as a “worm.”

Gentle hand washing without sizing is suggested, preferably with the garment inside out, drying without sun exposure. Unraveling should be handled gently and try not to use sharp objects that could get tangled in the threads. It can be taken to the dry cleaners and asked to be dry cleaned.


Technique: Backstrap loom
