Story Behind the Art: How do you make a centuries old craft relevant for today? Manzoor of Cashmere Crafts had the answer. He set up a collaboration with artists from North America to design modern patterns that could then be brought to life by the makers of Cashmere Crafts. Located in Kashmir, India, long a center for fine textiles, the Cashmere Crafts cooperative specializes in the art of chain stitch embroidery, a technique that has been in use since at least the year 1100. It is also painstaking. A pillow can take a team of 3 people 4-5 days to complete. A rug or wall hanging can take up to 18 months. In Kashmir, working with fabric is definitely a family endeavor, employing skills that have been passed down for generations. Manzoor himself is the third generation of his family to work in the textile industry. By working with Cashmere Crafts, these families are able to not only preserve a long history of textile production, but they receive a steady income that enables them to educate their children and provide supplemental income during the cold winter months when agriculture slows down.
