Cushions - Chain Stitch Embroidery

  • The Chandni Chowk Chain Stitch Collection is hand made to a very high standard in Kashmir.

    Embroidery stitch work is 100% Wool stitched onto a 100% Cotton base fabric. The embroidery is done using a crochet hook called an 'Aari' and the stitch work follows a design outline applied to the fabric. It requires the use of an embroidery hoop or frame on which the material is stretched taut and secured prior to stitching ensuring an even amount of tension in the stitches, so that designs do not become distorted.
    The technique is at least a thousand years old and is the style used for the Bayeux Tapestry and many Jacobean embroidery works. Hand embroidery work, including Crewel Work is one of the most celebrated traditional artisan skills in the Kashmir region.
