STUNNING BANJARA CHOLI
All hand spun cotton, hand woven cloth, hand embroidery and hand stitched!
Super example of rare banjara sub-group of textiles from a vanishing culture.
No Longer made.
Age unknown but estimated to be from the 1960s-1970s
Note the beautiful beautiful Indigo!!! As well as the amazing little mashru patch used at the bottom - maybe the cloth was not enough and had to be supplemented by what was readily available.
Simply fabulous piece!
Will make a wonderful artwork framed and put up on the wall!
May be paired with 709
Length 46cm Width when laid out flat 35cm. This size makes me wonder about the use. Yet the creases on the sleeves indicate that the piece has indeed adorned a young banjara girl.
This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
