This one-of-a-kind hand-made sheer silk and felted long vest, comes direct to the US from the loving hands of Seven Sisters of Kyrgyzstan. This elegant loose-fitting summer weight vest, with white and grey tribal patterns on delicate grey silk, measures 39″ long at center back. Size: Medium. Seven Sisters is a family business carrying on a long-standing tradition of working with silk and merino wool to create gorgeous clothing and accessories that will make you stand out from the crowd. The tradition was passed down to Seven Sisters from their father, a famous Kyrgyz artist, who taught his daughters the importance of capturing the spirit of their people in their art. Seven Sisters has garnered 26 UNESCO Awards of Excellence for its designs, and exhibited their work regularly at the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market (the largest and most competitive event of its kind in the world).
