Embroidered Door or Window Hanging

The Rabari is a nomadic group well known for their embroidery with origins in Rajasthan, but then settled in semi-desert areas in Gujurat. Their work is identified by their mirror (shisha) work, bright colors, motifs referencing their mythology and traditions, and use of chain and open chain stitching.

This piece is decorated with florals, birds, an elephant, a human figure, and geometric designs. These door hangings were made to welcome guests.
