Over the years, working with needle and thread has been, by far, the most enduring form of personal expression: adorning cloth, piecing it together, adding strength and embellishment. In India, embroidery patterns can be so distinct that a child can recognize someone from their village just by the stitch-work on their clothing.

Maiwa has collaborated with artisans to bring the most skillful work into the modern world. The items below all have one thing in common. They were designed to showcase needlework in a way that can be used on a daily basis.

These embroideries bring the richness of desert cultures into your hands — heirlooms for the future.
