Vishnu Horse Kalaga Embroidery Gypsy Fringe Bag is created in a gold tones paisley tapestry, trimmed out in thick forest green and copper tassel fringe.
The vintage Kalaga panel features an embroidered Hindu God Vishnu as Lord Hayagriva focal point surrounded by string, sequin, bead accents and deep plum ribbon fringe. Adding to the charm and character of this one of a kind bag expect some occasional flaws as this harvested panel is not newly created.
You’ll find a convenient cell phone pocket in the generous lining of polyester striped satin with a soft sheen. An adjustable leather 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 leather 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.
