This striking cushion is made from a vintage Banjara bag. The Banjara are a semi nomadic ethnic group originating from Rajasthan. The textile is made from layers of thin cotton quilted together with strong and even stitches. There are also bands of decorative couched stitching which adds to the interest of the textie. The result is a strong and iconic textile that is great for cushions. The top layer of fabric is a Balotra block print in madder and indigo which is nicely faded. This cushion is backed with indigo dyed vintage hemp, has a zip fastener and feather pad.
