An incredible piece here and a very rare find, this is an antique ensemble late 19th / early 20th century.

Traditional dress from the South East Asian most likely Philippines, possibly Bagobo.

This fantastic set comprises an open fronted jacket, purse, hat and pants (similar to Sawal).

They have all been laboriously hand crafted with the most spectacular attention to detail, the outfit must have taken weeks to create, it is truly a sight to behold, the majority of the scarce amount of pieces such as this are usually found in museums but even there I have been unable to find such a full collection.

This piece came from a private collection in England.

The base fabric for each piece is made from a cotton like substance possibly the native abacá and appears to have some ground silk infused, each piece has a woven crochet fringing of bronze metal thread.

The hand embroidery is amazing and has elaborate patterns and designs all hand sewn with metal threads of beautiful tones along with tiny metal mesh links.

I cannot add enough pictures to enable all of its beauty to be seen but if you would like any further pictures then please drop us a message and we will send them across.

The quality is very good there are a few areas of crochet mesh that has come loose but this in no way detracts, please ask for pictures.
