This skirt is the work of a real master of her craft. A very beautiful and special textile. The wide waist is densely and finely embroidered with mirror work. The skirt also has extensive fine embroidery and applique and some mirror work.
It is fully lined and the skirt itself made from sturdy heavyweight cotton. This piece is in particularly good condition. Zips up the back.
The waist measurement of this one is 32 inches and it is about 19 inches long with a great flare, If worn high on the waist as in the photo the skirt portion of the garment is almost 11 inches long and the waist is about 8 inches long. It is a quite a short skirt. The crenoline adds a bit of length and I will send it with the garment free of cost. I've seen these skirts worn this way by models in Spain.
This skirt can be worn one of two ways. For smaller hipped people it can be worn low on the waist as an above the knee skirt. For the less small waisted it can be worn as a high waisted skirt. Either way it is fab.
These come from the Banjara tribe of Northern India.
Gorgeous handmade and embroidered skirts from the Rabari tribe of Northern India. Very fine and extensively embroidered . Each of them has been made with such love and attention, representing weeks of work. The price does not reflect the value of these in my opinion.
The color is a deep purply burgundy. The up close photos do a better job capturing the color.
These are from a tribe in Gujarat, India where the most festive and beautiful embroidery comes from.
The waist is adjustable with a drawstring with a maximum measurement of 31". Length is 32 inches with a very generous flare.
This is an old authentic necklace from Nagaland in Northeastern India. Beautiful mustardy burnt orange colored glass beads! This necklace has about 58 strands with a wonderful beaded pattern at the closure. The closure is a very old seed button. This necklace is in very good, sturdy condition to be worn or collected.
22 inches long.
Nagaland is home to some of the most amazing tribal dress. The Naga people practiced headhunting through the 1900s and may still in parts of Burma! Do a google image search for Naga people for a visual feast.
These are becoming increasingly rare and hard to find.
Very cool handmade Rabari bracelets with lots of handmade tassels. The base is hand embroidered and the tassels are hand dyed. I love these as tassely decor too. Because they open and close they can be hung anyplace. They are PERFECT as bag tassels, or on door knobs but would work for lots of things.

Each of these Rabari shawls has been made with such love and attention. These are from a tribe in Gujarat, India where the most exuberant and beautiful embroidery comes from.
The shawls are 100% wool apart from the decoration. Some of the older decoration is wool. These are often adorned in layers generation to generation, I imagine. They are toasty warm and truly fetching.
The wool is dyed once and then tie dyed again to make the all over design. It is unusual in that it has a few different colors of tie dye towards the center and not just the traditional red and white.
This item is probably 30 or 40 years old. It is in excellent condition. It is unusual in that it is a dark brownish red color while most are black or dark brown.
These are great shawls for cool weather or striking as a wall hanging or throw.
measures 36 "X 86"
