Wrap Around Skirt (Pinapa)

This wrap around skirt of a woman originates from the rancheria Lamao and was, according to Schadenberg, an old heirloom piece. The silk fabric is in plain weave and consists of three assembled panels. The outside edges and seams were embroidered with dark red silk yarn. Occasionally, the embroidery is suddenly interrupted, giving the impression there was not sufficient yarn. (Ursula Brandl-Straka 2009: 80)
