Embroidered Tribal Textile Panels
These fantastic hand-embroidered textile panels come from the Kuchi tribes in Afghanistan and Pakistan. They're wonderfulfor creating handmade journal covers, as a panel for a handbag, for incorporating into crazy quilts or art quilts, and so much more!
Each panel measures approximately 10"x10," but as these are handmade items, this may vary slightly. The embroidered area is approximately 7-1/2" x 7-1/2". Some of these are close to a perfect square, some are a bit skewed, but all of them have vibrant colors and beautiful handiwork. Each piece is different... the embroidery patterns are all very similar to the sample photos here, but colors vary. Some have florescent orange thread on one or two squares and a few are embroidered on colored cotton backgrounds (such as light green or bluish-gray.)
These are fantastic for incorporating into ethnic style handbags, art quilts, and other textile projects. You could also make a gorgeous handmade art journal cover or traveler's notebook, or incorporate this into the background of a shadow box. If you're feeling especially adventurous, you could even cut it up and use the pieces in smaller projects.
