Satin handcrafted "un" traditional blouse from the Tzotzil Mayan village of San Juan Chamula. This one is special in that it is a hybrid. It is a Chamula un with Zinacantan style embroidery! Chamula and Zinacantan are neighboring villages but with a very different aesthetic. This is hand embroidered, these are becoming increasingly rare as the current style features machine embroidery.
I love the cut and the overall look. Chest width 20 x length 25 inches. A size medium. These are intended to fit snugly around the shoulders.
Wonderful hand-embroidered dress from Uzbekistan. The cut is perfect and the embroidery is fabulous. A really nice quality of velvet. Probably rayon but nice enough that it may have silk content (Uzbekistan makes beautiful silk velvet. The perfect cool weather dress. Long sleeves and the generous cut allows for layers underneath. Could also be worn as a tunic with pants underneath.
44" long and 26" wide across the chest under the armpits.
