These were yet again labelled "Dowry Bags." This was yet again another type of design. Moving from a heavily embroidered base up to an open Kantha type stitched top.
The way that the cords had been wrapped was interesting.
Buttons for decoration and the cord on this one is interesting.
Besides the stitching, which is stunning, and the use of mirrors and the colours I was taken by the types of tassels used to decorate the edges. Mostly just strips of fabric tied together and maybe some shells added.
And how the edging was put together.
So much inspiration in such a small exhibition.
