Ecuador Dolls Azuay Province

Matching pair of peasant dolls from the Azuay province in Ecuador. The female is wearing the typical skirt of the region, machine embroidered with flowers and with a scalloped edge. The male has a woven toquilla straw fan attached to his poncho.

Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!

No postcard available. There should be a nice postcard here that matches these dolls, to show you how the people living in Ecuador are dressed in their traditional costume.

There is nothing suitable in our postcard books at the moment, too bad!

Happy collecting,
