Story Behind the Art

The art of applique has been a tradition for centuries in Rajasthan, flourishing in the desert areas where the artisans have abundant time due to low rainfall. During the growing, season they work in fields nurturing and harvesting their crops. However, depending on rain fall, the growing season can be very short leaving them plenty of time to practice and perfect their art form. Each piece of the applique work is one of a kind and unique because each is done entirely by hand. The upper layer of fabric is cut into various patterns and designs and then sewn by hand to the lower layer. The art form requires a great deal of practice and precision. If a single error is made by the artisan, it can result in the piece becoming unusable. This beautiful, hand appliqué work is mostly done by the women of Rajasthan. This beautiful art work is not practiced in a factory environment; the artisans gather in a central place to stitch as their home and family schedules allow. 750 artisans from 20 different villages are able to provide education for their children and cover health expenses with every Worldstock order.

  • Jacket

    This jacket is very beautiful, and I'm pretty happy with the purchase. The fabric in the back doesn't line up like it shows in the photo (it doesn't make a perfect oval shape like I expected) but it seems well-constructed, and the material is very high quality. I also expected the material to be somewhat stiff like a suitcoat, but it is much softer and lays nicely, which is a big plus. Overall, it is gorgeous. I'm disappointed that the pattern doesn't match up in the back, but I think my mom will love this gift.

  • Not an American fit

    This jacket is gorgeous, but the sizes given seem to be British sizes, which run a full size or two behind American sizes. E.g.. a British 8 is an American 4 or 6 So know that you need to order a size or two larger than usual. The other problem is that the fabric of these jackets are as gorgeous as they appear, but they are designed for women with no busts and big hips. If you have breasts and no hips, forget it. The top won't button, and the bottom looks like a circus tent. If you're designed the other way, the fit may be perfect.
