    Northern state of Punjab

    Phulkari is a traditional hand embroidery, shaped like flowers, typically done on large stoles gifted to brides during weddings. Mothers and aunts of the bride create these folk art pieces, with some taking years to complete. Those with dense embroidery, concealing the base cloth, are called Baghs (gardens).


    Eastern state of Bengal

    Kantha is a crafting technique that involves reclaiming old saris, fabrics, and fabric remnants. Using a simple running stitch, one fabric is stacked on top of another, with close hand embroidery. If there is damage, colorful fabric patches are stitched over those areas. This method of attaching and reinforcing fabrics makes them reusable for creating scarves, pillows, and jackets.


    Western States of Rajasthan & Gujarat

    Bandhani or Tie Dyeing is an ancient art practiced in India. The process includes repeatedly plucking fabric, tightly tying it with a thread, and then dyeing it. After dyeing, the threads are opened, unveiling a distinctive pattern and texture. Craftspersons can create thousands of tiny knots in a one-meter length of cloth, making Bandhani scarves, stoles, and sarees highly popular throughout India.


    Western States of Gujarat & Rajasthan

    Ajrakh is a traditional craft involving block printing and resist dyeing. The meticulous process utilizes symmetrical wooden blocks and multiple washes with different natural dyes. Resist printing ensures dye absorption in specific areas, preventing colors from going where not intended.

    Typically, geometric patterns are repeated to create a web, and natural red and indigo dyes are traditionally employed.

  • Cashmere

    Northern State of Kashmir

    Pashmina is the art of handcrafting luxury wraps from Cashmere. The wool is sourced from the fine hair of mountain goats in the Himalayas.

    The fibers are hand spun and woven, in a time intensive production method, that involves meticulous handcrafting.

    Delicate hand embroidery transforms the stoles into collectibles of exceptional quality.

  • Weaving

    Every State of India

    Weaving on a handloom is one of the oldest textiles traditions in India. Indian weavers in every state are known for their skill and ingenuity in creating traditional patterns. The fabrics are used extensively as sarees, clothing and home decor. The weaves of India are as diverse as they are beautiful. Some of the most famous weaves are Jamdani, Ikat, Kani and Kanjeevaram. It is impossible to list them all!

  • Block Printing

    Western states of Rajasthan and Gujarat 

    Block printing is a 2000-year-old technique of printing on fabric or paper using intricately carved wooden blocks. The inked block is carefully pressed onto the fabric, and the process is repeated. It becomes more complex with multiple colors, as each block must be precisely placed. This meticulous and creative process is practiced by skilled artisans, and old carved wooden blocks are considered collectors' items.

  • Chikankari

    Northern state of Uttar Pradesh

    Chikankari is an elegant, centuries old embroidery technique, traditionally using white threads on white fabrics. 

    Chikankari designs are usually   delicate vines or flowers, embroidered on soft georgette or ‘mulmul’ cotton fabrics. There are 32 different types of Chikankari stitches and techniques. The clothes are perfect for daily wear in the hot Indian summer months. Elaborate, and colorful, versions are made for modern weddings and party wear. 

  • Mulmul

    Western state of Rajasthan

    Mulmul is a light woven fabric popularly known as ‘Mul’ in India. The Western name is Muslin. It is the lightest and most breathable cotton, and feels soft and comfortable against the skin. Mul fabrics are much sought after in India and were originally favored by the royals of Rajasthan as well as imported by European nobility in the 17th century. 

    Marigold Row has commissioned block prints and chikankari work on mulmul fabrics. Scarves and clothing will be available starting the Summer of 2024!
