Vintage Huipils (Niña)

Vintage Huipils (Niña)

from 28.00

We uncovered three gorgeous ‘70s era girl’s huipils in an antiques market in Oaxaca city.

Like the iconic Tehuantepec huipils Frida Kahlo was most known for, these one-of-a-kind pieces were also made by the Zapotec women of the Istmo Region. Constructed by hand out of velvet and satin, each is elaborately embroidered with either a traditional floral or geometric pattern—typical motifs of this matriarchal society, and symbols of Tehuana feminine power.

Once your child has outgrown the huipil, we recommend framing it as the piece of art it is, and hanging it on the wall! Please see notes below regarding size, etc.
