Banjara Embroidery - Large Red Leather Bag - Pattern 1


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. 42cm (16.5") in width, 28cm (11") in height, 17cm (6.75") in depth at the base. 2 straps measure 62cm (24").

Features: Block printed cotton lining with phone pocket and large zippered pocket perfect for keeping your essentials handy. Comfortable on shoulder or in hand.

Note: The Banjara embroidery pieces are one of a kind.
