These folk textiles are vintage embroidered envelope pouches made by Banjara weavers of Rajasthan, India. These small bags date to the early 20th century and were used for carrying tobacco, betel quid, or other small, loose objects. Each bag is densely embroidered in a range of colors and further decorated with tassels and shells. Beautiful examples of traditional folk textile art, the four pouches are set within a unique carved frame finished with black and gold paint.
