Bhujodi Caravan Blanket - Handspun & Handwoven Wool

$649.95

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 two 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.
