  • Crafted by the Lambadis of Tamil Nadu

    This Surya, or "sun," motif is consistently found on traditional Lambadi clothing and textiles together with other colorful stitches, shells, mirrors and beads. For this design we focused on the motif itself, playing with placement and size instead. 

    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.
