We believe that this is a woman's Uzbek dress, but really, have no clue, except that it was purchased in Afghanistan. If you can identify it, please send us a convo.

This is one wild garment! It probably would have had matching pants to go with it. A rich, shiny green velvet shell is host to acrylic embroidery gone wild! The embroidery is all chain stitching and celebrates nature with its colors, swirls and birds. There are even a couple of teapots in there! One cannot wear this unless there is a feeling of happiness, for sure.

It is big and blousy and would fit up to a size 16 (US). It's narrow at the shoulders, so be sure to check the measurements below to be on the safe side. Condition is very good except for a small tear at the neck. I have a feeling someone pushed their head through...

The garment has been machine washed and dried and held up very well.

Estimated age: 1980's

Afghanistan has been at the heart of the crossroads for the Silk Road for centuries. Nomads and generations of ethnic groups have thrived on trade and beautiful handicraft skills. Textiles, embroidery and carpet weaving continue to represent a plethora of skills that extend on into metal work, wood work, and ceramics. Designs reflect both the beauty of nature and life of spirit in choice of colors and fluidity of the design.

Afghan Tribal Arts has been working with Afghan artists for more than 20 years. Handcarved semi-precious beads are the core focus of the business, but we also have a huge inventory of old and new textiles, carvings and metal work. Visit our shop here on Etsy to see our beautiful treasures!
