Beautiful colors with images of the sun's rays around the neck, many birds, a wide variety of flowers, buds and leaves, butterflies, and geometrical designs. Huipil weavings are a vision of nature, images from their Mayan world, beautiful beyond imagination. The Huipil Quilt covers a King Size bed, very heavy and warm. The dimensions are 84-inches by 96-inches.
It has a black cloth backing with a heavy edging.
