I bought this vintage Banjara rumal because not only is the embroidery and applique exquisite, the colours are also very pretty. It dates to around 1980 so they are still good.  A rumal is a small decorative piece of cloth with a special use, such as in ceremonies or to cover or wrap gifts. I've mounted the rumal on dark blue dyed vintage hemp which is stretched over a canvas. It makes a lovely piece of wall art and the little mirrors reflect the light.
