“Beautiful things come together with one stitch at a time” – Donna Goddard
Indian Embroidery Market – Old Is Forever Gold
Nowadays it is all about prints and patterns and 3D printing and color blocking and fabric contrasting. But since all the things ’60s and ‘70s are coming back, how could embroidery and patchwork be left behind. Fashion always keeps changing, but the Indian embroidery designs have managed to maintain a place in the fashion industry throughout all the changing scenarios.
Indian embroidery is cherished by craftsmen and has the world swooning over them.
India is known for its beautiful myriad forms of embroidery techniques, elegance, and sophistication. Embroidery designs in India are influenced by different cultures and have a flavor of their own. Every state and region boasts of its style, but needlework is not merely a means of ornamentation.
The fabrics are also threaded with stories of the community, with motifs emerging from its natural surroundings. The calming effects aside, a piece of neat needlework can also be the perfect gift for a dear friend or a family member to create a strong sense of connection.
