These beaded pieces have been removed from old clothing or other decorative tribal items. Because these pieces are handmade, there may be some slight variation in size, shape or pattern. This panel is 17.5 inches long and about 3.5 inches wide. Beadwork is made all of one piece with no backing. Simply sew in place to any costuming item.
Beaded strips and panels add a touch of authenticity to tribal dance costuming with their bright colors. Each is as unique and different as a work of art! Afghani beadwork is made from glass seed beads and a backing material that can include a cardboard or plastic covered in fabric.
Afghani beadwork is some of the finest in the world, often with intricate mathematical patterns. (Studies have been done on the mathematics of Kuchi beadwork - ask me about it!) Please be aware that these pieces have been used and reused, often many times, and will show wear in places. Beadwork can often be repaired simply by running a bit of beading floss through the beads and knotting it securely. If you have questions about our beadwork, please contact us at info @ redcamel.net.
