Indian Embroidered Choli with Mirrorwork
Though the nomadic women of Rajasthan wear long veils over their heads, their actual backs are surprisingly bare. The choli is worn in all of its mirrored brilliance to deflect the evil eye and to attract, perhaps, the men in the family traveling on ahead and setting up camp. Susan collects the Choli, a favorite and exuberant expression of a woman's life, her breasts celebrated, her midriff adorned.
Glorious hung. Only wearable by the tiniest frames.
