An Indian Patchwork Wall Hanging


Category: Artwork

A patchwork wall hanging which immediately evokes India.

This wall hanging from Jodphur is a made up of various pieces of costume and textiles sewn together and backed onto a late, black material.

It is very difficult to ascertain the age of the pieces of patchwork and indeed they could be a number of ages. However, they have been united to make a very decorative, large wall hanging. The backing material has been fitted with wide belt loops to two sides to allow it to be hung either way

Probably made either side of 1900 but possible 20th century.
