This listing is for Kuchi headdress with multi color red, pink, blue & green foil backed glass pieces that the Kuchi are known for and small bells and dangles for a lovely sound! This headdress is a nickle color with a green velvet fabric base and maroon yarn ties.

The centerpiece on this headdresses is approx 3", has inverted heart shape piece in center surrounded by multiple round & then teardrop & more round pieces. The bases are made from a coin metal alloy referred to as gillet. Headdress is 11" long, sides are approx 1" wide. There are multiple 1 1/4" long dangles.

The older pieces have been worn & reflect years of loving use. You can expect worn fabric, an occasional missing bell, stone or coin, dings & dents. This piece has very short ties, could use some longer ties attached, fraying on the threads holding on the seed beads & ties. The Kuchi pieces come from Afghanistan & Pakistan.

These pieces have a wonderful folkloric look & are perfect for tribal dancers or accoutrements to wear at burning man or other festivals! These older pieces are getting more difficult to come across, more & more of the machined pieces are coming out of these areas.

I have lots more Banjara, Afghani/Kuchi & other Tribal Pieces available, please ask if you are looking for something in particular! I have two groupings of collars right now that would be good matching ones for troupes!

Your choice will be shipped via insured small pkg flat rate priority. Shipping to Australia is 16.95 via small flat rate priority.

I am happy to combine shipping for multiple items! The combined shipping costs are based on the purchase of the same size items, so if you purchase a smaller item, the shipping will be less.
