Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra

Hidden Gems – new sightings in old acquisitions! 


In an embroidery rich in texture and motifs and age, it was easy to miss the 5th color used sparingly – it hid within the flowers – almost shy of being seen by the world – just like the young Punjabi bride who must have worn in the early 1900s! ❤️❤️

And so, I saw the plum red only years after having this! I think I’m going to be considered blind or inattentive considering the weekly reports I make of new discoveries in old acquisitions!

😊

And now a little quiz:

Can you spot the Nazar Butti? The anomaly that’s meant to absorb the evil eye?


Yes?

Enjoy!
