Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra

Wealth of  Ladakh 

Photos of photo prints of women wearing traditional jewelry at festivals. 

The magnificentv Petak headdress has been discussed earlier. 

But the  others have not received enough attention! 

Here are sone fantastic pueces:


The large necklaces are called skeypuks and the silver flower worn at the waist is the tshooptze.  

The Perak headdress and the ghau, the ear ornaments all combine to make the most amazing set of cultural jewels!

If there were ever a meaningless competition among world cultures for the most extravagant jewelry created, Ladakh would probably win! 

Some pieces soon to be offered on the WOVENSOULS gallery:

Blessings to the creators 😘😘😘😘
