Kashmiri Crewel Embroidery

The fine needle art of Kashmir is famous all over the world. One can find their needle art in Pashmina Shawls, Silk or woolen carpets and embroidered home textiles and decor.
A tradition, that has already impressed the ancient Mughal kings of India and Persia, who then decorated their palaces with these unique and breathtaking pieces of art.
"Crewel embroidery, or crewelwork, is a type of surface embroidery using wool. A wide variety of different embroidery stitches are used to follow a design outline applied to the fabric. The technique is at least a thousand years old" source: Wikipedia
Our Kashmiri Embroidery collection is made in the old town part of Srinagar, in mystique Kashmir, north India. 
Were Sufis room around, hundreds of people live on traditional houseboats, Safron fields bloom and the surrounding Himalaya mountain range protects this "little paradise on earth"
