Sindhi Mukka Dowry Purse - Antique
These antiques are authentic hand crafted items by a local Sindhi Muslim woman (whose community is originally migrant from Pakistan), in the Thar Desert region (Rajasthan, India). These purses are made with the traditional Sindhi metallic embroidery Mukka, which uses gold and silver threads hand-worked with delicacy and minuteness.
Ethnic styles express lifestyle. They are practiced by individuals whose heritage is rooted in community rather than land, and considered cultural property.
