Rural Decor

I sourced this colorful tie-up in local markets of Kolhapur. Kolhapur is a more agricultural city than Solapur. Farmers there are dedicated towards cultivating and thus more of the rural handmade culture can be seen. These tie ups are made by local women for the animals they breed. Made of cotton rope and acrylic pom-poms with adjustable knots... these things look really pretty on animals.

But I am going to use them in a different way...
Thinking of how it can be used as a nice hanging on one of the doors of my new house I'm working on!
