The nomads in Afghanistan wear colorful clothes. The women's dresses in particular are very expensively embroidered. Everything is hand-sewn from cotton fabric and beautifully decorated with ribbons and cords.
Women of the nomadic tribes in Afghanistan wear this dress over the ankle dress.
The Kuchi nomad dress offered here is an old and antique, handcrafted, sometimes very filigree folklore dress from Afghanistan and Pakistan. Old colored glass was used to decorate the clothes. After years of use off the logs, it is natural that there may be dark streaks, stains and repairs in the pieces, pieces may be missing, the fabric may be torn or velvets abrasions from desert storms, and small particles may be missing. Bear in mind that it may have traveled far - from nomads on mountains and deserts to Kabul and now to us!
