This is one-of-a-kind embroidery on hand stitched leather. The piece is the result of a collaboration between the Banjara embroiderers (a semi-nomadic tribe of Southern India) and the Jawaja Leatherworkers.
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. Both mirrors and motifs have auspicious power and are believed to offer protection from harm.
Size is approx. 27 x 21 cm / 10.5 x 8”
Features: Zipper along the top curves around the corners and a small card holder pocket inside.
Note: The Banjara embroidery pieces are one of a kind.
