Linen Drawstring Embroidered Bag

£65.00

We couldn't resist buying this beautiful linen drawstring bag, it is a genuine treasure and work of Art.

Made in Kutch, India by a Social Enterprise dedicated to the preservation of traditional arts, the bag showcases traditional Khaarek and Suf counted hand embroidery.  Khaarek embroidery sees the artisan work out the structure of geometric patterns with an outline of black squares, then fill in the spaces with bands of satin stitching that are worked along warp and weft from the front.  Within the Suf tradition of embroidery, motifs are never drawn, each artisan imagines her design, then counts it out in reverse.  These skilled embroiderers have a sharp understanding of geometry and fill the cloth with symmetrical patterns based on the triangle.  Detailed beading and tassel work embellishes the bag.

BAG SIZE | H27cm x W25cm,  HANDLE HEIGHT | 61cm, DRAWSTRING TASSLE | 42cm
