Cultures with rich textile traditions are adept at repurposing old fabrics to give them new life. India, and more specifically Rajasthan, is at the center of this textile universe. It is an area home to many different peoples who have distinct uses for, and styles of, textiles. These Banjara fabrics featured in the pillows below originated as wedding dresses. They were embroidered and decorated with joy, celebration, hope and the personalities of generations. Later, small pieces from the dresses were patchworked together, sometimes overdyed or further embellished, to create tapestries to adorn the home. They are joyous, fascinating works of art with many lives and many stories to tell.

Vintage and antique textiles have experienced a full life before making their way to our stores. A vintage item of exceptional quality should not be viewed as brand new, as it shows signs of a lifetime, or several, being used and appreciated by its original makers. Evidence of this well-lived life may be visible in slightly distressed fabric, loose threads, small tears, non-standard sizes and other unique imperfections.
