Banjari Bag are created by the semi-nomadic Banjara people of the Kutch. This bag would hold tools and other important everyday objects. "Banjara" is derived from the Hindi word "Banjar" or barren, an apt description for the landscape where they live and tend their cattle. Before our 2020 trip to India, we hadn't seen these large bags. We love them! This is an older textile with wear spots. Covered with beautiful hand stitching and shells adorning the edges. Beautiful hung on the wall.
