Large Banjara chakla cushion

Code: CHACK16


W: 24" (61 cm)H: 24" (61 cm)


This large cushion is made from a vintage Banjara chackla in almost perfect condition. A chackla such as this would be a textile used for special purposes such as a ceremonial cover or to wrap a gift. The chackla is made from layers of cotton quilted together in tiny stitches with decorative couching and embroidery. The colour of the cotton fabric is a pinky red and the decorative stitching in dark blue, yellow, red and off white. The corners have been decorated with cowrie shells.
The back of the cushion is in plain linen and has been added keeping the beautifully over-sewn edges of the chackla visible. There is a one inch flange border, zip fastener and feather pad.
