Authentic, one-of-a-kind folk art dowry bags are handmade by the women of the nomadic Banjara tribe, originally of Gujuart and Rajasthan, India.  Crafted of natural dyes, extensive appliqué and embroidery, mirror work, buttons, and tassels, each richly-colored bag is unique to the woman who made it, showcasing the maker’s design and stitching skills.  Used for packing wedding gifts and typically carried on a camel. The Banjara name is derived from the word bajika, which means trade or business, and from banji, meaning peddler’s pack.  Would be beautiful in a simple floating frame.

Double-sided.  25” x  35".  Approximately 50 years old. Vintage showing some wear.  From India.  Available online only.
