Vintage 'chakla' squares, traditionally made for either side of the doorway, this rare find has been converted to a cushion cover for the urban home.
This collection of hand picked vintage embroideries of Gujarat come from the homes of Ahir, Rabari, Sodha Rajput and Meghwal women, where textiles represent identity. The elements of stitch, motif, pattern and colour carry deep cultural meanings. Every young girl embroiders her own dowry - festive decorations for her new family and home. Today, these fine embroideries are a rare find.
