Nice Kutch embroidery! Happy birthday :)

Happy birthday Laney !

What a fabulous present, lucky you !

happy birthday, this piece embodies the enthusiasm i admire in indian textiles. they are always overwhelming and bursting with energy.

Wow! Tuesday was also Diwali, the Indian Festival of Light, when everyone gives presents (their winter version of Christmas), so how appropriate. Happy Diwali & Happy Birthday!

Wow, I just love the colours, the mirrors, the stitch..............

Laney - this is absolutely delicious. That's the best word I can think of for them -- as I find myself devouring it with my eyes. I am so electrified by Indian folkart - the colors, the shapes, the textures, the stories. Oh so cool. You are a lucky girl 'cause you can actually touch it.

A joyous piece and what stories it holds- just right for a cold and grey day. Thank you for sharing.

  • Quality
    Slow Cloth artists, designers, crafters and artisans want to make things that last and are well-made.
  • Beauty
    It's in the eye of the beholder, yes, but it's in our nature to reach for beauty and create it where we can.
  • Community
    Slow Cloth supports community by sharing knowledge and respecting relationships.
