This is a small but powerful embroidery based on an a motif from an old Indian kantha. The background fabric is pale grey linen. The embroidery is made in vintage darning threads, in blue and red. the leaves (vintage denim and silk) are stitched (not glued) and are gently fraying and have a raised effect (please see closeup photos). The border is made from a vintage kimono silk. There is a hard frame hidden behind the embroidery to support the embroidery at the back.

A great present to this special someone who has everything or is hard-to-please!
