    ..see, I found a book in my grandma's library the other day, it's about.. ethnic fashion and tribes from all over the world, it's absolutely beautiful and fascinating.. I can't stop looking at it. I hope you don't mind a small bombarding, in a matter of minutes!.

    gius, my apologies about the lack of color.. it's a book from the 50s.. there are some sporadic pages in color but nearly all of them are black and white. -_-

    also.. don't shoot me for taking photographs!.. the pages are too big to be scanned.. i hope that's an excuse and W magazine scanners stay away from denying the big lie. :lol:

    love it, MP :P thank you~ i didn't notice they were all photos actually.. the quality still seems okay, unlike the one i took with the camera :ermm:

    the kuna girl you posted and the two women standing (post #9) that come after her photo, they're wearing molas :heart: Someone in my class brought a few of those.. her son is Mexican, I think. the technique they use is 'reverse appliqué'... you layer fabrics on top of eachother and cut out shapes/layers to reveal coloured layers underneath... these cut areas are then sewn down so it stays put.

    :woot: that sounds so interesting, gius, I've seen women doing those blouses about a dozen times and I never paid enough attention or even knew they had an specific name, shame on me!. I love the all-white molas, I think they're all from the Oaxaca region.. or perhaps Veracruz, I'm not sure.. but they're beautiful.. :heart:
