Vishnu Horse Vintage Embroidered Panel Gypsy Fringe Bag is created in gold tone-on-tone damask chenille tapestry, trimmed out in thick pink peach brush fringe and periwinkle/cornflower blue tassel fringe.
The vintage Kalaga panel features a padded and embroidered Hindu God Vishnu as Lord Hayagriva focal point surrounded by string, sequin, and bead accents. Adding to the charm and character of this one of a kind bag expect some occasional flaws as this harvested panel was hand crafted in the early part of the 20th century.
You’ll find a convenient cell phone pocket in the generous soft sheen lining of polyester striped satin. An adjustable strap allows you to wear cross body, hands free style. This bag closes with a scratch resistant, heavy duty nylon zipper closure with a companion tassel zipper pull.
Kalaga embroidery is an artform that emerged in the mid-19th century during the Konbaung dynasty in the reign of Mindon Min when velvet became fashionable at the royal court. Typical tapestries are padded figures sewn with a combination of metallic and plain threads and adorned with sequins, beads and glass stones onto a background depicting a figure or scene, traditionally from Burmese classical plays.
