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.

love it, MP thank you~ i didn't notice they were all photos actually.. the quality still seems okay, unlike the one i took with the camera
the kuna girl you posted and the two women standing (post #9) that come after her photo, they're wearing molas 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.

Lower Saxony, Germany.
Dutch woman (Huizen).
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..
i love the icelandic girls and the switzerland one and the Navajo indian accessories With the black and white i guess it's hard to tell if some parts in the necklace and bracelet are fabric or wood/jewel giving me some ideas

oh I know!
it would all come to life if there was some color and the white was real white and not grey.. tut tut..
