During the visit in March 2005, I met this young women who was the owner of the Centro de Arte Indigena in Xochi the huipil she was wearing was one of the finest white on white huipils I have ever seem. The delicate designs and light weight thread were impressive. Inside the store she had racks and racks of the appliqué skirts and a separate rack of commercial lace huipils seen on page 1. The straps are bought separately and then sewn on . The market that day was interesting and gives a visitor a good chance to see the broad variety of Amusgo style and grace.
