Vintage Hand Crafted Gypsy Banjara Clutch with Coins
This is a hand made clutch purse made from hand embroidered fabrics taken from vintage, Afgani kaftans.These unique bags are made from vintage authentic Afganistan fabrics taken from old kaftans/dresses. The fabric for this particular bag is is remarkable in many other ways. ..the entire bag is covered by cotton and silver/gold colored thread (also called zari) embroideries. Real mirrors of varying diameters are scattered throughout embroidery. It is further embellished with vintage coins. To give you an exact idea of how coins are sewn on to the front side of the purse, I have shown in first picture , three coins pulled up temporarily. Normally, all coins will rest in one line on clutch.
This clutch handmade with vintage and antique mixed woven textiles.
COLOR: multi-colored embroidery as shown in picture
TEXTURE: cotton and gold/silver thread embroidery on cotton material embellished using old Indian coins.The inside of the bag is lined with cotton fabric.
SIZE: 7 height x 8.5 wide (approximate dimensions) .
OTHER FEATURES: Zip closure inside the clutch. Magnetic snap button closure on top.
I have few other designs available in these bags. Please check out my other listings.
The fabric used for these bags is 40-60 years old. Minor imperfections add to the charm of each bag and make it unique.
These embroideries have been popular in Afganistan, Pakistan and India for more than a century, they have just recently become a rage with Hollywood A list celebrities. They are not sold in stores. I have a very limited stock of these as vintage Afgani fabric is excellent condition needed to make these bags is hard to come by so grab one while you can!

Wonderful embroidered shawl!!
Beautiful!! Very happy :)
The hand crafted vintage kantha quilt throw I ordered is absolutely beautiful. The combination of colors on the front and reverse side and the detailed hand stitching are amazing. It is even more beautiful than the photo.
The churidar leggings are great and will be perfect with tunics.
Artisans of India is a very honest seller and have great communication. They are so appreciative of positive comments. They work very hard on their beautiful handcrafted items and the colors and designs reflect the beauty of India.
I have purchased from this seller many times and have always gotten great service. I love everything I have gotten from her...tunics, bags, shawls... I get lots of compliments on the bags and am excited to get the latest one. It is just as cute in person as the photo shows.
