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 burn-out style rayon velvet, and the top is a patchwork of embroidered and beaded cotton.
46" long and 18" wide across the chest under the armpits. Goes on over the head.
Wonderful shawl from Chamula, Chiapas. This garment is handwoven from the little sheep that are raised in small flocks there, spun on small top style spindles and then hand embroidered. In addition to looking great it is warm and super practical. We love a poncho.
The wool that goes to make this shawls is raised locally and spun on small top style spindles. This was purchased from the woman that made it.
This is a gorgeous handwoven huipil from the Costa Chica of Oaxaca. The huipil is woven of soft hand spun cotton. The beautiful blue color is made from a a natural indigo dye. Huipiles from this region are difficult to come by and this is a fabulous example.
This was purchased from the artisan at asking price.
This one has these measurements: Chest 27.5" Length 27.5"
