San Ildefonso Ixtahuacan

The huipiles from San Ildefonso Ixtahuacan are some of my recent favorites. The huipiles there are very similar to those in Colotenango, but they include a wide, hand-embroidered square collar that is not present in Colotenango's. The design features small, tight diamond and box designs. The randa - embroidery that joins two pieces of fabric - also has a unique design to it.
