These magnificent embroideries come from the Kutch region, a district in the state of Gujarat, India. The characteristic effect of the colourful embroidery shines through when small mirrors are stitched onto the designs. Many of Kutch’s embroideries are influenced by various architectural designs and motifs. Embroidered fabrics are used for festive occasions and to decorate deities, so animals and figures of Indian gods and goddesses feature prominently in the design.
Vintage Patchwork is a technique in which different pieces of fabric are taken and put together to form something different. In this wall decoration beautiful pieces of colourful vintage fabric patches were put together. This Kutch Shisha textile can be framed or hung on the wall.
