Trivia

This cushion showcases the very popular fabric technique of appliqué. Appliqué is very widely practiced in the western Indian states of Gujarat and Rajasthan, mostly by rural women. This work gives them a source of income and helps to keep the appliqué tradition alive. Appliqué translates literally into 'applying' fabric on fabric and sewing down the edges. Usually done in the same family of colours or varying shades of the same colour, white on off-white is perhaps the most popular combination. Since it was extremely popular during the Mughal rule, the motifs are influenced by the architecture of the period and we see the classic 'Jaali' (net) pattern quite often. Motifs are also drawn extensively from nature. The 'Tree of life' is possibly the most widely seen one.
