Tribal Textiles from India

The Tribal Textiles & fabric arts of India are exquisite. Since these arts are very labor-intensive, we are seeing less of them in modern times. Lifestyles of nomadic & indigenous peoples are changing with less time to create fabrications as they did in the past.  Some of the younger people have no interest in these arts anymore or create inferior tourist-grade pieces. To own one of these pieces is a way to preserve & respect these arts. This is a rare collection of mostly antique elaborately embroidered and beaded wall hangings, bedspreads, throws, pillows, rugs and more from India, Pakistan & Afghanistan
