This is a very beautiful 1970s banjara textile piece, possibly used as a belt ( there is no hooks or buttons, the piece has been pinned in the picture but this can easily be added if you wanted to wear this item) It would also look lovely hung over a door or placed on a shelf edge or alter.
Banjara embroidery is essentially done on cotton cloth. Chain stitch, cross stitch, stem stitch, herringbone stitch, couching, appliqué work, mirror work, kashida and quilting are some of the stitches and techniques used.
The Banjara (also known as Gor, Naik, Lambadi) are a historically nomadic trading tribe who may have origins in the Mewar region of what is now Rajasthan.
