Paisley Garden Black and Pink Wrap

$ 260.00

Style and tradition come together in this striking wrap of pink flowers and paisleys made by the women of Self Help Enterprises in India.  Artisans use the centuries-old Kantha stitching technique in which layers of fabric are brought together with 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 wearable garden of beauty will envelop you in loveliness no matter where you go and in every season!

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 x 90” long. 

"The kantha works are imbued with a sense of serenity."- Shamlu Dudeja of Self Help Enterprises, India
