Dense embroidery on the shoulder-sleeve area with some mirrorwork.
Once attached but now separated from the plain un-embroidered pleated white lower half that forms part of a kediyu - probably because that portion gets soiled over time. The white is then separated and discarded while the embroidered section is recycled and made into an outfit for a groom of the next generation.
Minor signs of usage to be expected.
Estimated to be from the 1930s-60s
Will look grand when tailor-made into a jacket.
MUSEUM REFERENCE: A similar kedia (with similar condition issues) from the Debariya Rabari tribe may be seen at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
