Description 

Made from 100% silk, this pillow exhibits the stylishness of quilt work. Square pieces are patched together with kantha embroidery stitch to construct the pillow and the same exquisite kantha embroidery adorns it to create squares inscribed within larger squares.

A Fair Trade product. Handmade by artisans in India.

How It's Made

A women's cooperative that employs over 600 women from a drought-prone region of western India crafted this product.

Artisans expertly employ kantha embroidery and appliqué techniques, accentuating the textures, design, and colors of stunning cotton and silk products. They apply simple kantha straight-stitch to create varied patterns including adjusting stitch length. Kantha stitch is also used to overlay appliqué work, mirrors, threads, and beads to a base fabric. Block printed and solid fabrics of various combinations are used for appliqué to give each piece a unique feel and expression. All fabrics used are dyed or block printed with azo-free dyes. The textiles are sourced from a number of different groups; many of which are local artisan communities or non-profits. Some of the fabric is handwoven.
