This Hampi souvenir T-shirt design is inspired by the wandering monkeys of the area and features a monkey print in the Lambani embroidery style which is an amalgam of pattern darning, mirror work, cross stitch, and overlaid and quilting stitches with borders of Kangura patchwork appliqué, done on loosely woven dark blue or red handloom base fabric. You’ll go bananas over it, we’re sure!
Hampi is epic in more ways than one. According to the Ramayana, Kishkinda, the region around Hampi was a fabled monkey kingdom and no less than Hanuman, the Hindu monkey god was born there. This t-shirt is a representation of this legend.
