Textile fragment with bandhani, or tie-dye, imitation and interlocking circles

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Two square blocks create alternating designs, one with triangular bandhani imitation, the other with interlocking circles, as in Cat. no. 617 [EA1990.624]. Both designs are white on a red ground, and the interlocking circles have in addition brown outlines.

    Selvedge with remains of blue stitching. The pattern was printed to extend beyond the selvedge. The reverse is less saturated with dye than the surface.
