Skirt length, Tehuantepec, Oaxaca, Mexico. Silk velvet, cotton thread, Mid-20th century, 108" (274 cm) long by 25" (63.5 cm) wide. This wildly graphic skirt is unusual, as most often on these traditional traje (costume) there is a band or two of cadinella design running the length of the skirt. The patterns are painstakingly embroidered by hand, though most later skirts from the 70s and 80s have sewing machine applied embroidery. This was the type of skirt typically worn by Frida Kahlo; see last photo from an exhibit at the Frida Kahlo Museum. The waistband and lace flounce have been removed, and the condition of the fabric is very good.
