And, Hello you!
May this year, and this decade
Be the best ever
In the very first post of the year, let me introduce you to Ingrid Khan. Ingrid, who stays in Sweden, developed a deep appreciation and love for the traditional stitch and textile craft from Bangladesh, during her many travels to the Indian sub-continent. She works with women artisans from the country, and creates, what could only be called, heirloom textiles.
This work is known as Nakshi kantha and has traditionally been done on old sarees/fabric. Now, it is also done on silk and fine cotton, or dhaka muslin. Each handcrafted piece can take up to two months or more to make.
Ingrid's love for design from Indian sub continent is clearly visible in her beautifully done up home...
