Indian Embroidered Choli with Mirrorwork

In Gujarat, India, the Rabari tribal women wear these fabulous choli, or blouses, which they embroider themselves,  studded with mirrorwork that glimmers in the desert sun.  The breasts and torso are lit up with this threaded detail; the back remains open.  We love these, and collect them, and very rarely, like now, release one to the market.  Grab it and growl.

Vintage piece, suitable for a collection.  Wonderful hung to enliven any space.  

Made in India 

Cotton, silk, mirror
