I have been a Phulkari lover ever since I purchased this one while shopping for The Loaded Trunk in India several years ago. These textile treasures from Punjab are beautiful, charming and steeped in tradition. They are so much a part of the culture of the Punjab region of India that the Indian government designated the region to be the sole location where these embroideries can be made. They are a fraction of the price of many more popular and trendy textiles making these brilliant choices to add to the eclectic home.
This really brightens up my hallway. I carefully used pushed pins to hang it.
In her new book " The New Bohemians " Justina graces the cover with a vintage chair recovered in a Phulkari. Lucky me - she has cited The Loaded Trunk as one of her retail sources - So honored !
Phulkari make wonderful accent pieces.
Oh, if only this lovely worn Phulkari could tell where it has been!
Up-cycled Phulkari pillows add Pop to this old Indian bench.
If you find yourself heading to India remember to look for these beauties if you're in Punjab.
