Vintage Skirt

Sale price₹ 65,000.00

Embroidery from a Rabari ghagro from Kutch re-worked onto a dark burgundy organza silk skirt. The original skirt was of a similar colour but in a thick handwoven cotton fabric. The body of the skirt is interspersed with ‘barfi’ or diamond motifs using the ‘bavariyo’ stitch and beadwork.

Made on request for a client for Garba, a 9 day long festival celebrated in Gujarat where men and women dance in coordinated circles around a mother deity (Shakti/ Amba/Durga), to honour her as the feminine divine and acknowledge the cyclical nature of life. During the dance, the Goddess remains the one unmoving symbol in the centre while everything around her is in constant movement.

Paired with a backless choli or blouse made from different patterns of striped mashroo fabric.

CARE: Dry clean only

NOTE: All Vintage garments are one-of-a-kind and made to order. Please expect variations in embroidery. Our merchandiser will contact you once the order is placed to discuss customisation options and delivery.
