Superfine "Tan" embroidery on handwoven Khadi Cotton
From the Rajasthan / Sindh / Swat belt
Given the migratory history of the peoples of this region, it is difficult to ascertain a definitive source location for this piece. Some have sworn that this work is from Swat, others have put it down to Sind.
Wherever it came from, the piece is absolutely gorgeous and will be a superb wall artwork.
26" X 34"
Estimated to be from the early 1900s
