Wonderful hand-embroidered dress from the Balochi people of Afghanistan. These take about two months of daily work to produce. The cut is perfect and the embroidery is fabulous. The ultimate boho dress!
The base is a very silky buttery satin, a nice quality fabric.
45" long and 20" wide across the chest under the armpits. Goes on over the head.
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
