Ridiculously adorable hand-embroidered dress from Uzbekistan. The cut is perfect and the embroidery is fabulous. A nice fine cotton base (the quality of which is rare now) and plush vibrant suzani embroidery. A lovely quality of cotton embroidery thread that has the slightest sheen too it, almost looks like silk.
31" long and 19" wide across the chest under the armpits.
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.
