Rajasthan and Gujarat have a rich tradition of embroidery. Clothes, bags, tents, horse saddles and many other articles were traditionally embroidered in gold, silver and colourful cotton and silk threads. Chain stitch, cross-stitch, herringbone and real mirrors were used to embellish these articles. Natural vegetable dyes were used and the designs were floral, geometric and inspired from nature.
Monica Melwani of Pasupati Atrs will show us some beautiful vintage embroideries and patchworks. She is passionately committed to working with these artisans and will talk to us about how this art form has evolved over the years. Monica’s father started Pashupati Arts and she continues the tradition of selling Indian crafts and embroideries to travellers who arrive at the Gateway of India!
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about these one of a kind embroideries.
