Magnificent Textile Art! Kuchi Embroidered Patchwork Bedspreads & Tapestries [color & size choices above]: The Kuchi (which means “nomad” in the  Dari language) are tribespeople who travel the mountain routes between Pakistan and Afghanistan, guiding their herds of sheep and camels to the sparse grazing grounds scattered over rugged mountain terrain. The Kuchi are well known because of their brightly woven andPakistan embroidered fabrics. You will never find  anything quite like their wonderful textiles.. They are available almost nowhere else in North America orArtisan Europe! You will be thrilled with the artistry and vibrant colors when you open the box.  An amazing patchwork of vintage embroidered cotton pieces in a  array of colors and designs. Many of the recycled, vintage patches are cut from women's blouses, saris, head scarves, and shawls.  The embroidery is delicate so hand wash and hang dry. 

Our intent is to preserve traditional methods of hand weaving while providing a steady and fair income to the artisans. We acquire these fabulous, museum quality, hand embroidered Kuchi bedspreads & tapestries from partners in Pakistan, Habitat Integrated Pakistan [HIP], a member of the Asia Fair Trade Forum and the Fair Trade Federation .  HIP is dedicated to sustainable development. One of  HIP's programs is to promote the wonderful textiles made by gypsy women in Punjab, Pakistan. Habitat Integrated Pakistan provides training and financial assistance to help these women start small craft cooperatives.
