Hand Embroidered Vintage Banjara Cushion with Cowrie Shells


These cushions are made from a deconstructed vintage bag and are in excellent condition. Embroidered by the nomadic Banjara people from India, they are stitched in a distinctive rhythmic pattern using multicoloured thread. This particular one is a favourite ,older and so refined using the fabulous vegetable dye colours of madder and indigo. I also kept it to its original shape......cushion pad made accordingly !
Totally abstract, each piece a one off ,they will add a bold and unique statement to any home !

Backed with ecru linen ,concealed zipper and filled with feather inner.
