Tushita’s contemporary reflection on Appliqué

The core idea behind my creating and designing these hand embroidered artworks is to highlight the beauty and importance of hand embroideries, which seem to be diminishing- thanks to the adoption of fast fashion labels across the globe.  With this humble attempt, I wish to elevate hand embroidery to a more artistic and tasteful level.

The Art Of Appliqué in India 

Appliqué is derived form the Latin word ‘applicare’ meaning ‘to fold’ or ‘to fasten’. It is the technique of applying colorful fabric pieces on the base fabric. Raw edges of these patches are finished with a definite mode of stitchery work. It developed as a means of mending old cloth or old garments from economical considerations.

Appliqué is a textile technology that survives till today, not enjoying any royal patronage, but as an essential part to daily existence.
