Old Sind or Thar Indian Embroidery
This is an old Rajasthani or Sindi embroidered pillow cover, probably from the Thar Desert
region near Jaisalmer. Approximately 32 x 14 inches. The embroideress has used a wide variety
of stitches, all excellently rendered, to deliver an attractive design in cotton floss and silver
metallic thread. Brick red handloomed background cloth. Square compartmentalized designs. I
think that the pink cotton ruffle edging was added at a later time. The textile is in very good
condition Enjoy.
