This beautiful, antique heavily embroidered Gujarati Chakla was once used to decorate the homes of the Kambi farmers of the Mahajan community, Saurasthra area of Gujarat who hand wove this beautiful piece themselves. It is heavily embroidered with silk floss and mirrors.
The silk floss and cotton embroidery work is all hand stitched. Filled with symbolic images of medallions, which are a traditional folk art icon representing creation; flowers offer blessings in fertility and chevrons along the edges with a slight stem stitch along the top which represent temples of the mother goddess. It is also decorated with beautiful shisha mirrors which signify good fortune and in just the right light will gleam, like sunlight on a pond.
It has 4 fabric hooks on each edge.
