Banjara embroidery is an Indian tradition done by gypsy tribes.
It is a more coloured version than Kantha (see my previous blog)
Dark red, black or blue are the most used colours for the background fabric
for Banjara.
Shells are quite often used in the decoration.

Banjara is usually worked with brightly coloured cotton. Counted thread fabric such as linen or aida is great for practising this embroidery on, this also
allows you to work out the pattern onto graph paper before working and ensures that the pattern stays even.
