India's Patchwork Wall Tapestry. "Violet Petunia"- Fabric Wall Hanging wall decor. Indian ethnic wall tapestry. Artikrti
Indian Wall Hanging, Ethnic Patchwork Embroidered Wall Tapestry: This handmade piece of work can be traced in terms of its roots to over a thousand years back- to the Banjara tribal women of Rajasthan in Western India, who in turn, are said to have been the descendants of the gypsies from Europe!
Nomadic in nature, their clothes and work reflected a certain free spirit in its choice of bright bold colors and a certain randomness in the choice of patterns, the material used and the workmanship- embroidery, mirror work, bead work, sequins, silk and linen thread motifs, ivory pieces, copper wire.
This Banjara wall hanging, 1000 years later, is a labor of love- exquisite workmanship, every finger-span. The "Violet Petunia" will be a dramatic twist to the décor in your living room or family room or up-on-the-wall above the staircase or down on the floor as a rug below your center-table.
A great gift for a new home, a house-warming party or a newly wedded couple or for an anniversary or for just that moment of indulgence when you have that urge to give in to some extravaganza.

India’s textile & fabric traditions go down centuries- the talent of the craftsman and her dedication to her craft, passed on from one generation to another. A weave, a mix of colors, a design or a motif, a print, a piece of applique work- each a labor of love for the artisan, in giving birth to her creation.
Artikrti’s [meaning 'artistic creations'] mission is to take the fascinating kaleidoscope that is India and get the world outside to experience it. And add a stroke of beauty that’s different, to each woman’s life- to her personal beauty and her home.
Thank you for dropping by. In true Indian tradition, we hope your visit to Artikrti was a pleasurable one and we do hope to see you again in the future.
