This fine Nebaj huipil blows my mind! Such tremendous design and creativity. Fine dense almost psychedelic embroidery on a solid purple base. This huipil was hand woven on a back strap loom in two purple base panels made of a material call "aleman" in Guatemala. It is a rayon cotton mix and it is like nothing I've ever felt. Super soft and supple yet substantial. The panels are decorated with supplementary brocade featuring animal, bird and geometric motifs typical of Nebaj weavings. The complex intermingling of these motifs gives the overall design an abstract quality. The traditional collar design symbolizing the four cardinal directions is hand embroidered. This classic example is in very good condition
23 inches long and 25.5 inches wide
These are great year round. In the winter I wear them over a light sweater and they are super cozy.

Gorgeous handmade and embroidered skirts from the Rabari tribe of Northern India. Very fine and expertly embroidered with cotton embroidery floss. 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.
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 34". Length is 34 inches. All cotton. For more great Banjara and Rabari skirts check out the skirt section of the shop!
