AlamsTrading's Shop Announcement

In my shop you will find handmade needlepoint natural cotton quilts known as 'Nakshi Kantha'. This is a folk art in South Asia, that has been around for hundreds of years. I take the pride of introducing this precious craft to the western world.
I bring the plain fabrics (known locally as Than) and other accessories from Bangladesh.
The first step is to draw the designs (blocks) on the fabrics. Blocks are the papers once put on the fabrics, leaves marked designs.
The next step is to decide what color stitches are going to be. Stitching is the longest step in the process.
All of my quilts you see in my Etsy store, are made in New Jersey.
Thanks to my friends and relatives, who helps me now and then to make this quilts.
