Karen Woman’s Tunic
Totally handsewn, this older example of a Sgaw Karen woman’s tunic is a nice older example of this genre. Supple, weft-faced, handwoven indigo cotton is the foundation for a lower panel of elaborate embroidery utilizing cotton yarn and Job’s Tears seeds. We see this style in the villages and markets, but not in indigo anymore. Condition is very good- this was probably saved for special occasions.
