INDIAN ROOTS is a new creation from my actual collection .
This collection is like a trip in my head , the influences coming from Central Asia , Afghanistan , Turkmenistan , Uzbekistan , India , Macedonia .....
I collect in all the world ( thank you internet ) beautiful and marvellous vintage , antique materials , full of history , and I want blend them with a "certain French Chic Touch ".
I sew a maximum by hand , without machine , I braid , I knot the fabrics , because all these technique of work are "old like the world" , and used by generations of women in all the world which preceded us .
I think that hand made sewing is more decorative .
When I sew by hand I use thick threads, like ornaments / embroideries .
I love the poetry and the imperfections found in the hand stitched work , so far away the ugly cheap mass production .....
INDIAN ROOTS MATERIALS
The base is a fabric wool , with stripes ( grey , burgundy , black , red , brown ) it looks "ethnic" ( right image )
On the top of this fabric , a dark brown mohair wool fabric .
On this brown mohair , I made a patchwork composition with embroidered parts cut on a vintage silk sari , brown and kaki
All these applications are hand stitched , quilted with thick wool threads , colors green absinthe , dark purple , grey taupe , burgundy .
Long Fringes made with wool grey taupe .
Decorations with vintage metal coins from Central Asia ( Pakistani, Indian, Afghani, and Turkish )
