Hand embroidered in meticulous detail by the most skilled artisans in Agra, India, using a unique form of embroidery called zardozi.
The word Zardozi is from the Persian language and means "gold thread". It is an elaborate and intricate embroidery using metallic threads and genuine semi precious stones, to give a rich and opulent 3D effect. Zardozi was introduced into India in the early 16th century and was used initially to adorn the robes of the royal families. The city of Agra, home of the famous Taj Mahal, was the seat of the Mughal Empire and it remains a center for traditional handicrafts that had flourished under the Mughal kings. Now you too can own a wearable work of art, once reserved only for royalty!
The different stitching glitters and glows, the silk shimmers in the light, and the stones add elegant sparkle. Like a perfect little jewel box.
Finest quality. Elegant! Gorgeous bag!
This is the perfect gift for someone recovering from injury, sickness or a traumatic experience. Or perhaps getting married again. The lotus flower is symbolic of purity as it blooms pure white despite growing in muddy waters and it can grow in the most unlikeliest of places. Each blossom re-blooms every morning, emerging pure white from the muddy waters due to its waxy petals. The lotus flower's daily resurrection is symbolic of revival. In Buddhist and Egyptian culture, the flower represented the universe. In Hindu culture, gods and goddesses sat on lotus thrones. And according to Buddhist myth, the Buddha appeared atop a floating lotus, and his first footsteps on Earth left lotus blossoms.
