Vintage Gold Trimmed Embroidered Andean Vest
This is one of our favorite pieces in the collection! This one of kind vest just exudes so much creativity, beauty, talent, culture and diversity. Heavily embroidered folk vest from from the Andean mountains of Peru, made by the Q'ero people. Most likely 30+ years old but in spectacular condition.
The front has endless embroidered stories of birds, flowers and butterflies, the details are incredible and it's almost hard to keep up with all the charm. This piece is fully decorated, it is the best statement piece. Made of cotton with gold and silver trim. Vintage, so please expect some wear.
A very special, hard to find folk collector's piece!
 
*This piece was purchased from the owner at a very reasonable price for both parties ensuring FAIR TRADE especially for the Quechuan owner in Peru. We had found this jacket in a small town in the Andean mountains in 2017. We cherish and respect it, as you should as well.
