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 a perfectly wonderful handmade textile from Madagascar. Soft hand-spun, hand-dyed and handwoven raw silk textiles produced from wild harvested silkworm pods as opposed to cultivated ones. A beautiful color and wonderful drape.
We have several of these and each is slightly different so check out this section of my shop for more, to compare:
