Nature’s Bounty Black and Red Warli Wrap
The nature that surrounds humanity is unparalleled. With eyes wide open we are able to see all of nature’s bounty before us. This gorgeous wrap from the women of Self Help Enterprises in India utilizes traditional Warli mural symbols from the Gujarat region of India and is a comforting reminder of that.
Artisans use the Kantha stitching technique, a centuries-old running stitch used for joining layers of fabric with hand done cotton thread embroidery. The process begins first with the artist drawing the design on paper. Pinholes are then punched along the outlines of the designs. The paper is placed on the fabric and color is dotted through the holes using a cotton ball to form the outline of the design. After the paper is removed, the artist stitches over the dots and fills in the central areas of the design with running stitches.
This unique piece of folk art is handcrafted and may contain slight variations in color and design which add to its charm.
Measures approximately 35” wide by 94” long.
