There is a region in India called Gujarat - it is known for very intricate handwork of all kinds. The Patchwork Tapestry is one such example. It usually has brightly embroidered cotton Patches. They combine recycled antique saris, Indian bedspreads and wedding gowns sewn with Zardosi embroidery (the metal wires that we are using in one of the slippers). Kutch is another region within Gujarat that has its typical type of crochet, and Gujarati mirror and sequin work. Some of the patches are 80 to 100 years old and recycled to make these spreads.
