Lambani Tribal Craft - Mirrorwork Sling Bag, Multicoloured. Lambanis, elsewhere known as “Banjaras”, who originally came from Marwar are semi-nomadic people who reside mostly in Southern and Middle India. The Banjara women still hold steadfast to their ancient mode of dress, which is perhaps the most colourful and elaborate of any tribal group in India. The Lambani women practice a unique mirror and embroidery craft which is an amalgam of pattern darning, mirror work, cross stitch, and overlaid and quilting stitches with borders of “Kangura” patchwork appliqué, done on loosely woven handloom base fabric. There are 14 types of stitches and 13 main colours used in Lambani embroidery that lend a beautiful, bohemian appeal to the items. A distinctive design range is its revival and use of local mud-resist handloom fabric, and the mirrors, shells and white ornamental trims that are a traditional part of Lambani products. The base cloth used is either cotton khadi or power loom fabric and is also dyed locally, thus working in harmony with the local small scale industry.
