Gorgeous handmade and embroidered skirts from the Rabari tribe of Northern India. Very fine and extensively embroidered . Each of them has been made with such love and attention, representing weeks of work. The price does not reflect the value of these in my opinion.
The color is a deep purply burgundy. The up close photos do a better job capturing the color.
These are from a tribe in Gujarat, India where the most festive and beautiful embroidery comes from.
The waist is adjustable with a drawstring with a maximum measurement of 31". Length is 32 inches with a very generous flare.
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.
