A simple pouch to keep things in. I saw something like this in the handicrafts market at the town of Chidambaram in South India (Tamil Nadu). Some rural co-op societies had used scraps of unused cloth to make a lot of incredible items, including pouches like this one. So I bought a few and brought them home with me and decided to give it my own try. It’s nowhere near what the original was like, but I like it all the same. :)
Chidambaram is rather more famous for its temple to Lord Shiva the Hindu god, depicted as Lord of the Dance (Nataraja). But it has a thriving handicrafts market which really gets into gear twice a year during celebrations and festivals like Guru Poornima and Mahashivratri (in July and February respectively).
Any old piece of cloth. 1 foot by 1 foot. For decoration, I chose shells, but you can pretty much go with anything you like.
