Mustard Hand-Quilted Neck Scarf
This piece from 11.11 activates remnant fabric left over from the garment making process by hand quilting curved patches together. The embroidered stitches gently reflect the movement of ripples on water. Kantha - hand stitching is part of the same functional embroidery genre that can be found throughout many cultures in the very familiar forms of : boro, sashiko and darning. Traditional Kantha features patches of worn textile mended together to extend the life of the fabric. Engaging kantha and patchwork as a design decision expresses a zero waste approach - making sure that each and every last piece of fabric is assigned value. Patchwork expresses a transformational possibility offering us hope that we can turn a fractured present into something that can function again. Craftsmanship lies at the heart of the 11.11 group. Renowned for its use of indigenous cotton and 100% natural dyes, the label engages heritage techniques such as hand spinning, hand loom weaving, hand painting, miniature tie-dyeing and quilting. The 11.11 group maintains its unique handmade vision by departing from mainstream manufacturing, producing small batch slow-made clothing in collaboration with groups of artisans located all across India.
