XL Banjara cushion

Code: BANJ82


W: 25" (63.5 cm)H: 23" (58.4 cm)


Just wow! This large cushion is made from a vintage Banjara rumal in almost perfect condition. A rumal such as this would be a textile used for special purposes such as a ceremonial cover or to wrap a gift. The rumal is made from layers of cotton quilted together in tiny stitches with decorative couching and embroidery. The colour of the cotton fabric is a really lovely madder browny-red and the decorative stitching in dark blue, yellow, red and off white. There is a small area of fading/wear shown in one of the photographs which is not really noticable
The back of the cushion is in plain linen and has been added keeping the beautifully over-sewn edges of the rumal visible. There is a one inch flange border, zip fastener and feather pad.
