Banjara Embroidery - 12" Cushion Cover - Red Squares


This is a one of a kind embroidery by the Banjara, a semi-nomadic tribe of Southern India.  

Banjara Embroidery deploys one of the largest stitch vocabularies of any cultural group. Fully committed to strong bold patterns, most motifs are based on a geometry of nested and altered squares. The lines and shapes have strength of personality that permits them to wander over the surface of a work without diminishing their distinctive character. Both mirrors and motifs have auspicious power and are believed to offer protection from harm.

Size is approx. 12" x 12"

Features: Hand embroidered piece featured on a linen background.

Note: Pillow form not included. 

This embroidery piece is one of a kind.
