Saddlebag stole

The artefact

This prized stole is made with fabrics taken from the traditional local costume for women: orbace and black and shocking pink finely fashioned velvet on a green background, lined with damask silk decorated with floral motifs. The reference to tradition is reinforced by the particular shape inspired by the large pockets of the traditional saddlebag.
