These bags all use traditional stitching techniques that reflect cultural or religious practices, and originate from specific areas of India – each province has its own style of embroidery from ancient times. The techniques used on these bags include Gujerati folk ‘Shisha’ embroidery (mirror work embroidery), Kantha embroidery (running stitch embroidery), and Kashmiri Kashidakari (satin chain stitching). The embroidery is done with the fabric stretched over a frame, often by women in their homes to allow them to balance household duties with earning a good wage.
