Old Tibetan Woman

street style dharamsala
Old Tibetan woman. Is wearing a Chuba — ‘a long capacious robe with wide, elongated sleeves. Caught up at the waist by a woolen girdle so that its skirts reach only to the knees and its upper folds form an enormous circular pocket round the chest. The striped woven apron implies she is married.’

Photographed at Kora in Mcleodganj, Dharamsala in November 2013.

    Wonderful. Love the colour play between her walking stick and bag, and between her striped stick and apron.
