Rajasthan, which translated from Hindi means Land of Great Kings, is India's largest state. This region, dotted with ornate palaces and imposing forts, is famed for its bright saris, intricate turbans, camels, and rich cuisine. This boy's topi, or hat, served three uses. First, it protected the head from the hot sun of the Thar Desert, a large sandy ribbon that runs northeast through the state. Second, the bright green and silver brought a colorful contrast to the dune landscape. Finally, it was used to cover the head during prayer as a sign of respect.

The textile is carefully applied to a flax linen substrate, which provides a border between the textile and frame. This product  is available in our lucite frame. Our signature gold St. Frank plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of each piece.
