Product: This exquisite contemporary embroidery is handmade by a community of Mochi women in northern India. Each piece is totally unique. The designs, colours and composition are entirely the creation of the craftspeople, and we choose the finest pieces for our customers around the world.
These textiles are beautiful as bedspreads for a single or double bed, they can be used as wall hangings, throws or even as curtains to add a touch of colour and something a little bohemian to your decor.
Designer: The Mochis are a large caste of artisans in India, originally specialising in the manufacture of saddles and leather. Over the past 350 years, they have become renowned embroiderers in the subcontinent. Traditionally, the men work the leather, and the women decorate it.
The Mochis are famous for their exquisite chain-stitch embroidery, which is done with a fine needle with a wooden handle that has a small notch just above the tip, which forms a hook and creates very fine loops.
Size 150 x 230 cm
Cotton embroidered on cotton
Care Dry clean only. We are not fans of dry cleaning, but these pieces are too delicate to be washed, the embroidery on the cotton is heavy, and could be damaged by washing.
These pieces are hand made, and from time to time you may find tiny irregularities in the stitching which is a testament to the artisanal nature of this textile.
