I am Fashion Designer, Quilter and 51 year young girl offer Ethnic Embroidery Classes, come from country with rich culture – India.
My forefathers were craftsmen.  I learned Embroidery in school.
I graduated in accounts from Mumbai University but my heart was always at Traditional and Ethnic Embroidery.

In India we have many states each have their own Ethnic Embroidery like Gujarat Rabari Mirror Art, Bengali Kantha, Royal Embroidery of Zardosi, Lakhnavi Chikankari, Punjabi Phulkari and different Tribal Painting like Warli, Madhubani, Gond etc
It’s great privilege to know Indian Tribal Paintings and Ethnic Embroidery. I love experimenting fusion of Tribal Painting and Ethnic embroidery with vintage lace, shells, mirrors, beads and bells in my Quilts.

Zardosi is considered as Royal Embroidery. In olden times Kings’ and Queens’ attire were embellished with Zardosi embroidery. Originally Zardosi was made of twisted metallic wire with pure silver and real gold leaves.
However today we use Zardosi made of metallic wire with golden or silver polish and many other colours.
