Today, I got these bags as gifts! From Srinagar!! I have a pouch of Kashmiri wool aari embroidery on a white base. Such embroidery on white cotton base is very common. Here, the embroidery is done on dyed and patched leather. It has an awesome texture. And to add, the colors are very typically fall colors of this season: aubergine, mauve and true red with brown, black and olive greens and accent of mellow rose. I love these bags!
