Hand embroidery on hand woven cotton fabric. 96" x 25.5. 2018.
As Frank Lloyd said " Study Nature, Love Nature, Stay close to Nature. It will
never fail you". I believe natural textiles can very functional in today's time. Along with the material, there is a different charm of the handwork. This piece is hand spun from organic cotton, hand weaved on the handlooms and hand embroidered to give it a subtle yet an elegant look. Very soft and smooth to the skin, it can be used as a dress, a top or a scarf. One of a kind handcrafted natural textiles.
