DESCRIPTION

Their eyes lit up and a million ideas were streaming through their veins, like an endless river, a colossal waterfall. Their hands danced over the fabric like magic, building a new scenery that belonged to the fantastical world of their dreams, a reflection of their artistic mind. As their experienced limbs swept the vibrant thread delicately into the cotton that was their own stunning canvas, they stitched the beautiful array of birds and sprouting plants that connected the human to the divine, and the artisans with their true artistic shrine. The foliage in front of them was painted with the fantastic glimpse of nature, paying a tribute to their muse that blessed them with the gift of creation.

Communicating the true spirit and heritage of the Indian artisans and their unique styles of stitching, 'Stitch the Scenery’ is a cushion cover collection that will help you see the world from the eyes of an Indian artisan and present to you the rich culture of stitching that Indian proudly possesses. Mimicking the strokes of a drawing, chain stitching is an embroidery technique that originated in China in the 1100BC. Kantha stitching is a simple running style that brings to you the real essence of the state of West Bengal to your home. Taking its first step in the era of the Mughals, Backstitching or Bakhiya Taanka has established itself as one of the most popular and celebrated stitching techniques of the Lucknowi Chikankari. Made with cotton, these cushion covers are hand-stitched by artisans who have condensed a rich legacy of the Indian stitching artforms onto a single fabric as an expression of peace that you cannot find another way.

MANUFACTURING PROCESS:
It is made with the 100% hand-stitching techniques namely Chain Stitching and Kantha. The former has been used for the outline of the motifs while the latter for the motifs itself.

Chain Stitching, originated in 1100BC China, is a sewing and embroidery technique in which a series of looped stitches form a chain-like pattern. Because chain stitches can form flowing, curved lines, they are used in many surface embroidery styles that mimic ""drawing"" in thread.
Handmade chain stitch embroidery does not require that the needle pass through more than one layer of fabric. For this reason, the stitch is an effective surface embellishment near seams on finished fabric.

Kantha, a type of a simple running stitch which originated in West Bengal with the purpose to reuse old clothes and materials and turn them into something new. Traditionally this embroidery was used for quilts, dhotis and sarees. Now it can be seen in shawls, pillow covers, dupattas, and home furnishings.
Inspired from day-to-day life, the motifs designed on clothes or bed spreads were of birds, animals, folk scenes, fishes and imagery that depicted different views of livelihood for the people living in Bengal. Reprocessing was another form of motivation, since initially women recycled their old clothes and turned them into something more practical, like covers for furniture, or blankets. Economical, practical and yet beautiful is what Kantha embroidery is all about. The yarn is taken from old saree borders; the design is then traced and finally covered with running stitches.
