Cutwork Appliqué

Cutwork and appliqué are traditional crafts of India and are showcased throughout our collections here at Varana. For High Summer; the craft has been reimagined and inspired by the ancient Ebru marbling technique of aqueous surface design where an abstract ‘marbling’ pattern is formed by the inter-play of colour on the surface of water. The resulting ‘river’ of colour has then been translated through bespoke hand cut appliqué embroidery that is then placed on ultra-soft, textured white linen and cotton voile.
