Crafted by the Lambadis of Tamil Nadu
On this throw pillow embroidery is used to replicate a design which we had seen in a traditional appliqué craft form. Appliqué work, in combination with other forms of stitches and embellishments would have traditionally been used in several parts of India to decorate marriage costumes, wall hangings and quilts. The open stitch technique gives the petal cushion cover a lighter feel.
One of several pieces we created using this traditional petal form, it looks great styled together with our Multiple Petal Throw Pillow and Rectangular Petal Throw Pillow.
It takes a several days to complete each piece. While the design and technique are the same, each artisan has her own way of applying each stitch, making each piece unique in its own special way.
The Lambadi artisans are part of a group of around 50 women. Each woman works out of the comfort of her own home, allowing her to maintain a work-life balance.
