This is beautiful old Kutchi Embroidery. This nice textile was a wedding sash for a groom
(“Boukhani”). The textile dates from the early 20th century. It’s executed in a fine and skillful
chain stitch, interlacing stitch, mirror work and pakka stitch. Fabulous stylized peacocks with
abstract floral designs. White cotton background cloth with cotton floss threads colored blue,
yellow, green, dark purple and red. Very good conditon, missing a few mirrors.  SOLD
