This museum quality piece is 4.5" x 6" with pom-poms on 4 corners, vintage Sindh, Kharek embroidery. Artisans outline geometric patterns on a fabric and then fill in the spaces with bands of satin stitching that are worked along warp and weft from the front. This is a pouch/bag with a hanging strap I have attached myself. This form of art is influenced by Central Asia. The geometric patterns are created with detailed counting of threads in wrap and weft. Lots of work involved in creating this rare beauty. I have had it almost 50 years and it has been lovingly stored in a dry location. It is from an always smoke-free and pet-free home. I purchased it when I was wandering the incredible desert areas of India in the 1970's. Two sided embroidery bag/pouch/purse. Photos show both sides.
