These are my latest obsession. These come from Burkina Faso and are truly vintage. They ooze the sweet vibe of previous owners. This one is particularly deep indigo and a wonderful soft cotton.
They are great cool weather wraps, They work as big scarf/hood, they look fabulous as a throw for the couch and would be lovely table cloths. I have several of these and each is slightly different so check out this section of my shop for more, to compare.
It measures 74x42" not including the fringe.
As, I mentioned these are truly vintage and it is typical for them to come well worn, it is part of what makes them special. You can expect small holes and "chewed up" corners. If there is a major unsightly defect or the thing is on its last legs I will specify that, otherwise not. This one happens to be in excellent condition.
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
Its shown here worn as a tunic but would be great as a dress also. Please note the condition of the material in the photos. It is sturdy and any areas that need it have been reinforced. It is a gorgeous garment. The condition has been reflected in the price.
