Traditional Attire of Hospet

The Banjara women's ancient form of dress was the most colorful and involved extensive work more than any other tribal costume. The Lambani women adopted a unique mirror and embroidery style to make their traditional dresses, especially their wedding costumes. The Lambani embroidery contains cross stitching, mirror work, and overlaid stitches with borders of “Kangura” patchwork on either red or dark blue handloom fabric. This Lambani Embroidery also known as Banjaras is very popular in Hampi. Such products with wonderful embroidery, textures and style are very popular with tourists.

Lambani embroidery is done using 13 different colours, with red and blue being the most common. Either cotton khadi or power loom fabric is used as the base cloth and this is dyed locally, in co-operation with the local small scale industry. Lambani embroidery's fame has now reached all over the world with the export of subtly coloured cushion covers and bed sheets. However, the intricately embroidered bags in flashing colours remain the favourite among tourists.
