Bhujodi Caravan Blanket - Wool - Three Panel

$849.00

This is a traditional wool blanket, woven from a regional sheep wool known as deshi (country) wool. The blanket is woven by the Vankar community of Bhujodi. It is woven in three panels. The panels are stitched together using a decorative blanket stitch. This is a robust blanket that invokes the presence of caravans that traversed India's western deserts. The wools are naturally dark and light and have not been dyed. 

The wools are hand-spun by elders of the Robari community. Rabari are themselves a fabled nomadic group with a formidable presence. Rabari caravans can still be found on highways in the Kachchh region of Gujarat, India.

Details: 100% Deshi wool. Handspun and handwoven.

Size approx 108" x 96" (275 x 244cm)
