Embroidery on felted wool is a colourful and a tribal folk art that we see across Asia.

The ( mostly) brightly coloured woollen yarns are worked into felt garments especially cummerbunds and boots, belts and waistcoats to display the usual tribal language of recognition, celebration, ceremony, rights of passage, rank and achievement in such a manner that a neighbour can immediately understand. Stitches and embroidery in traditional techniques and patterns tell this story.
