Ridiculously adorable hand-embroidered dress from Uzbekistan. The cut is perfect and the embroidery is fabulous. A nice fine cotton base and plush vibrant suzani embroidery. A lovely quality of silk embroidery thread that has the slightest sheen too it.
50” long and 22” wide across the chest under the armpits.
Would fit up to a size large L. The model is 5' 7"
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.
