Each contemporary cotton cushion cover is embroidered by the Garasia Jat women of Kutch in western India, using their signature cross-stitch - with a difference. In this collection, traditional Jat patterns are transformed into limited edition abstract works of art inspired by the mid-century Modernist design movement.
Garasia Jats are Islamic pastoralists who have migrated to Kutch. Their embroidery is inspired by Islamic ornament, and has a rich array of geometric patterns that are picked out in counted-thread work.
Locally grown and hand woven organic Kala Cotton is not just environment sound, but the simple structure of the plain weave makes it appropriate for counted-thread work. This sustainable fibre is naturally drought and pest resistant.
These designs deliberately break away from the rigidity of traditional forms, to allow for a spontaneous flow of mark making to define organic patterns, lines, textures and shapes. This contemporary co-creation keeps the essence of Jat embroidery alive, while allowing for innovation to open new markets for the traditional craft.
