In Kashmir, one of the most fundamental forms of embroidery is the chainstitch, a series of looped stitches that create chain-like patterns. Because artists in Kashmir have been working with wool for a minute (since the 3rd century), perfecting our pillows is light work. The embroiderer uses an ari, a hooked needle attached to a long wooden handle, to pull wool thread from the underside of the cotton canvas to the top. The entire front surface of the pillow is chainstitched by hand. Detail for days.
For our chainstitch pillows, we source wondrous wool from New Zealand, not only because it amply absorbs natural dyes, but it's also super soft.
Natural dyeing is an art. A timeless testament to human harmony with nature. Knowledge of the exact ingredients to create color, and the best mordants and methods to ensure color fastness only comes from extensive experience.
MADE x HANDS only produces handmade, naturally-dyed products with colors derived from plants, vegetables and minerals. Natural dyes ensure our pieces are non-toxic, non-allergenic and biodegradable. Natural dyes are infinitely better for the environment, coming from 100% natural and renewable sources. Unlike synthetic dyes, which taint textiles with harmful carcinogens. Aesthetically, natural dyes create subtle variations in color that can never be copied by chemicals. Our natural dyes are much harder and meaningfully more expensive to make. Worth it.
