Textile fragment imitating patola pattern, with diamond-shapes, squares, and hearts

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A single band of diamonds and checkerboard squares, the latter set into an elongated hexagon. Hearts are attached to the two points of the hexagon. The band has a border of small arches surmounted by crosses. The design is white against a brown ground, and a solid red band fills the space to the selvedge. The design is certainly done in imitation of double-ikat patola patterns.

    Selvedge. The reverse is less saturated with dye than the surface.
