Kashmiri Crewel Work - Mobile Pouch


Kashmiri Crewel Work Mobile Pouch. Perhaps the most celebrated of traditional Kashmiri handicrafts is embroidery. Whether the flowing designs grace shawls, wall hangings, namdhas or tunics, Kashmiris are known as master embroidery artisans. The fabric is a canvas through which the artisan's embroidery brings to life designs that may have been handed down for centuries. The Kashmiri embroidery artisan uses their needle as a painter uses a brush. Crewel work is one of the four main types of embroidery that have developed in Kashmir, each with its own special quality and distinct style. Crewel embroidery is a fascinating needle art. Typically done in thin wool thread on linen or cotton fabric, crewel work provides a texture not seen in silk or cotton embroidery. A special kind of embroidery done with a pointed hook used for drapery and upholstery is known as crewel. Because of the high quality of embroidery done on wall hangings and rugs, Kashmiri crewel-work is in great demand throughout the world. Crewel is basically similar to chain stitch, done on a white background, though here the motifs, mainly stylized flowers, do not cover the entire surface, and the background is not embroidered upon. Wool is almost invariably used in crewel-work and colour schemes are not as elaborate as in chain stitch.
