Tunic with Embroidery with Job's Tear Seeds all over the front and back.
Estimated to be from the 1960s
Rare to find one in such good condition. Most others have the seeds falling off as the thread used to fasten them to the cloth has deteriorated over the decades and broken.
In the case of this piece, it is likely that much much older piece was salvaged and made into this tunic a few decades ago. The red bands and some of the threads are synthetic materials.í«í_
The large Job's tear seeds are yellow with age and in good condition.
Has signs of wear & usage that are a testimony to the textile artwork's hearty life.
