Travelogue: Karachi Sunday BazaarSunday, December 04, 2011
Check out these shots of a stall in the bazaar carrying some colorful folk textiles. Each piece comes from and represents a different province in Pakistan - Balochistan, Punjab, Sindh and Pakhtunkhwa. One familiar with Pakistan's rich textile history can easily identify which comes from where by the different types of embroideries and colors used.
All the bright colors spark so much vivid inspiration!
You can always pair a traditional folk piece with something clean and simple to create a unique look. The unexpected burst of color will be more than welcome. I found a gorgeous hot pink and turquoise embroidered bag at the floating market in Thailand, and paired it with a simple black shirt dress from H&M for a playful touch.
A little ethnic flair can always brighten up something that would otherwise be bland and predictable. And who doesn't love that!
