chollita

Una chollita boliviana, whose fluted dresses emulate the high style of 19th century ruling colonial elites, two centuries later. These days you usually see these unbelievably strong women schlepping their worldly belongings (often including small children) in tier brightly coloured bundles, all held together with a few expertly tied knots. #SAlivesketched #penandink #instaart #watercolor #urbansketch #sketchbook #bolivia
