The traditional colonial peasant dresses of Peru combine rich color and hand woven textural cloths, I just adore them. The dirndle skirts feature colorful hand woven boarders often featuring geometric shapes which have a modern Missoni feel to them.
The skirts are worn in various lengths and worn layered 3-4 or more at a time
the women wear brightly colored fitted tops under heavily embroidered jackets, many of the clothes are adorned with brightly colored pompoms.
This double braid looks great
I have been looking for information on the origin of the tall felt hats but I have not found much, does anyone know what they are called?
