AMAZING little antique patch with embroidery from rural Gujarat.
Superb hand spun cotton base cloth - hand dyed - in natural colors. The base cloth has been made out of different patches to create the size that the textile artist had in mind .... naturally, being frugal she chose to stitch pieces together and use them as the base cloth. This type of thrift is rarely seen today and is so endearing!
Most embroidery thread colors also appear to have natural dyes [not sure about the bright blue] but I am not an expert - please draw your conclusions from the pictures.
Can be framed and displayed or stitched on to any accessory / shawl / bag.
