Yao Woman’s Trousers
From around the Thai/Lao border, these beautiful ladies’ pants are completely covered with skillful cross-stitched embroidery in rich, harmonious colors. On indigo-dyed, handspun cotton, all handsewn seams and attached embellishments attest to the care taken in their making. Not new, they are in excellent condition and could be worn or displayed. One-size-fits-all waist is folded over and belted or pinned to fit; a drawstring could be easily added. We rarely see such skillful embroidery in harmonious colors anymore.
Size: 42″ waist; 51″ hips; 38.5″ long
