Details

  • Catalogue text

    A large textile, plain with a wide border of separate flower bunches, as well as framing bands with continuous vines and red flowers.

    The textile has been folded lengthwise and sewn together at the fringed end, possibly to be used as a pillow. The measurements for the fabric, as it appears now, are 2 x 64 cm. x 60 cm. The textile was probably made to be used originally as a waist sash, patka, a standard element of Indian costume. Late 19th century?
