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 mirrorwork.
It is fully lined with a gorgeous magenta cotton material and the skirt itself made from sturdy heavyweight cotton and silk. This piece is in particularly good condition. Zips up the back.
The waist measurement of this one is 31 inches and it is about 33 inches long with a great flare.
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.
