Banjara Embroidery - Red Leather Journey Bag - Pattern 1


This is a one of a kind embroidery on hand stitched leather— created in collaboration with the Banjara, 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. height 33cm (13 in) , width 39cm (15.5 in) , depth 8cm (3 in) 

Straps measure 62cm (24.5 in).

Features: A slightly tapered design with 2 handles that fit nicely over the shoulder.  An inner pocket perfect for keeping your essentials handy.

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