One of the most fabulous dresses from the Kuchi people of Afghanistan. These take about two months of daily work to produce. Like something out of a psychedelic fairy tail. A wonderful flare makes it great for dancing.
The skirt portion is a beautiful faux brocade silk. With the body color and sheen, it looks like silk.
43" long and 17" wide across the chest under the armpits. Goes on over the head.
This is huipil made from a Colotenango huipil. A beautiful colorway. The dress is base is made from a thick and supple rayon called aleman which is prized for its drape. The cotton embroidery is very fine and the geometric designs are of typical Colotenango embroidery.
W 35 x L 35 inches
