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. 25 x 25 cm / 9.75 x 9.75”
Features: Zipper along the top and a small zip pocket inside. Leather front and hand processed suede back*. *Imperfections are the nature of this hand process and are to be celebrated.
