Kachchh Embroidery - 16" Cushion Cover - Mutwa - Ember Vines

$129.00

Nothing can bring your home to life like an embroidered cushion cover. Elegant, playful, colourful, or subtle, these cushion covers provide a stage on which stitch work absolutely sings. 

Mutwa communities, originally from the Sindh region, now live in remote villages scattered through the Banni region of Kachchh. The embroidery of the Mutwa women is ethereal and intricate. Tiny mirrors and minuscule stitches distinguish them from other communities. The sparkle reflected in the mirrors dance in the light.

These embroideries bring the richness of desert cultures into your hands — heirlooms for the future. Each embroidery is a unique creation of the woman who made it. No two are the same.

The language of stitches builds within a community over hundreds of years. It is a source of identity that is transferred from one generation to the next. It is learned in the same way a spoken language is learned; with children sitting beside the adults. In an oral culture the stitched language records everything of importance from the epic to the personal.

Maiwa works with embroiderers through many co-operative structures within India. The women embroider, design, market and innovate as entrepreneur artisans. The goal is financial self-determination and empowerment through education and a clear sense of the value of their work.
