Kohistan Embroiderd Child's Vest.
14 inches across and 15 inches high (when closed). This child's vest has been embroidered in
chain stitches and beadwork by a mother who lovingly labored for her child in the Kohistan
region in modern day Pakistan. Black cotton vest with a printed red cotton inside lining.
Embellished with buttons and tiny white beads. Very nice abstract imagery imbued with what
must be some very interesting past and meaning, though today its meaning is probably lost.
The vest would probably fit a 3-5 year old child. The condition is generally excellent, with a few
glass beads missing in one section at the bottom. A rare and unusual textile that's great to
collect or wear from a little visited part of the world. $275
