Cherry blossom beaded decoration

Cherry blossom beaded decoration

£9.99

Luxurious plush fabric decoration featuring woven tartan fabric with intricate bead and embroidery work.

St. Nicolas specialises in bespoke handmade decorations. 

They have worked for 25 years with a small Christian charity in Thailand that helps disadvantaged rural women find work in their community. Today, some 200 skilled women work at home sewing St Nicolas decorations, and many of them have been doing so for more than 10 years. 

St Nicolas Indian decorations are made using the traditional method of zardozi embroidery. Zari (meaning gold) embroidery originated in Persia and reached India in the 12th century. It is a highly skilled embroidery technique that traditionally used gold wires and jewels to embellish courtly robes.
