A gorgeous small shoulder bag or clutch made from mirror work textile from Karnataka. This one is predominantly blue and red with large mirrors, coins, beaded tassels, a woven braided strap, a magnetic closure under the flap and one internal zipped pocket. A real beauty.
Mirror work from Karnataka - which is in the south of India - is characterised by the use of large mirrors (at least, large in comparison to the work from Gujarat). This work is done by the Lambanis who originally came from Marwar. Theyare
semi-nomadic people who reside mostly in Southern and Middle India. The Lambani women practice a unique mirror and embroidery craft,
which they mostly use for making their own traditional dresses or for giving to their daughters for their weddings.
