This embroidered vintage toran banner from Gujarat, India is extra long and well suited for a large wall space or entryway. It features a hand stitched, repeating floral motif of large scale plum colored, dahlia-like flowers separated by repeating scrolls or foliage patterns of marigold yellow and seafoam green which are bordered by a triangle design specific to the region.
Dimensions in inches: 147" long x 16" wide ( approximately 12 feet long )
Good vintage condition. Item is visibly faded, distressed and worn typical of age and consistent with most of the Indian wall hangings in our collection, which distinguishes them from newer, mass produced textiles made for the tourist and import markets. Most items show some discoloration, missing patches of embroidery or mirrors, makers marks and faint water stains in some cases. More structural and visual flaws like holes, rips or obvious stains will be noted.
The majority of these textiles were hand sourced in India directly from antique merchants. They're unique patina, wear and imperfections carry a glimps into the culture and regions they resided in for decades prior, the passing of time and the dedication, labor and skill of their makers.
