This is a hand embroidered huipil on piel de angel material. Much cooler than the velvet but also good for fiestas and daily wear. This belonged to the wife of the current mayor of Tehuantepec and was a gift to Dr. Chassen-López.
Huipil from the collection of Dr. Francie Chassen-López. Photo taken by the University of Kentucky Libraries.
