This daily huipil was hand woven on a backstrap loom in three panels. The center panel is heavily decorated with supplementary brocade featuring complex almost abstract geometric designs. The head hole is surrounded by a "collar" of appliqued rick-rack in typical Todos Santos style.
This one has quite a lot of supplementary brocade work and is in very good condition.
35" width x 30" length

Wonderful hand-embroidered dress from Uzbekistan. The cut is perfect and the embroidery is fabulous. A really nice quality of velvet. Probably rayon but nice enough that it may have silk content (Uzbekistan makes beautiful silk velvet. The perfect cool weather dress. Long sleeves and the generous cut allows for layers underneath. Could also be worn as a tunic with pants underneath.
44" long and 26" wide across the chest under the armpits.
