This is a perfectly wonderful vintage textile from Mali. The amazingly soft handwoven cotton textiles that has been tie dyed or resist dyed with indigo and sewn together to form this wrap. Wonderful drape. Has gold metallic stripes. It is in excellent condition.
These make great wraps. They work well 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 47"x 61"
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 is huipil made from an older pre 1980s Chichicastenango huipil and natural silk velvet. Absolutely phenomenal color way! The huipil is a now rare wool embroidered piece. These are no longer produced in this region.
W 27.5 x L 37 inches
The cost of the dress is just enough to cover the materials, the labor that went into it and the fees to sell it.
This poncho come from the Highlands of Chiapas, a village called San Andres Larrainzar. Not a traditional garment but a completely fabulous modern design using the traditional San Andres Larrainzar style of weaving. Wonderful color way.
