Week of June 17, 2018 – India

In January of 2014 I was privileged to take a two-week trip to India with a group of 19 people including Jinny Beyer.  We started in Ahmedabad and traveled into the Gujarat region looking for and learning about textiles that were created there.  I thought I would share a few of my smaller treasures with you.  This first piece is one of my favorites.  It is an antique embroidered cloth with one of the many hundreds of Hindu gods illustrated.  Someone would hang it over a doorway to add color and decoration. 
I suppose it was also a reminder to pray.  I just love the intricate needle work.

The next one is a head piece that is also embroidered and heavily padded.  Women would wear it as a protection on their head (I included a picture of me with it on my head, so you get the idea) and then put a large pot full of water which they had drawn at the local well and carry home their water with a little less discomfort.  It intrigued me that even their everyday household items were beautifully decorated.


I guess a trip to India without some sort of textile with elephants on it would be a wasted trip.  This next piece was commercially made (not hand done as the first two are) but it still includes beautiful machine embroidery showing off the purple and orange elephants.

This last piece is actually quite large and quite common.  It is part of a sari that has been recycled.  They take two saris and stitch them together with what appears to be long running stitches the length of the sari


(see close-up). 


Then this new quilt (with no batting) can be used for many purposes.  Sometimes it is used with several others to hang and create  continue reading..

Cuts from the medium bolts - 20% OFF!  
Purchase what remains on the bolt and it's 25% OFF!

Mirasol gives a portion of every purchase directly to funding local schools in Peru to educate the children of the shepherds.  We love that, and we love Mirasol. You will too :-)
