Asymmetrical Patchwork of cotton
I feel home sewing machine stitching is the best bridge between completely hand crafted by hand stitching and a completely commercially produced industrial stitching products. When I observe Gurmel stitching, I always find it tilting more towards hand craft than machine craft. Tailor is the extension of a sewing machine. Each stitch reflects his attention, reflexes and training. Since, Mora has chosen more dearly a two dimensional canvas, we need to immerse even more deeply in our stitching skills to bring celebration to a simple form.
How steadfast is the stitch?
Will it hold the gravity and tension?
How straight is the line of stitch? How many waves?
How many overlaps and slips in the stitch?
Is the colour of thread in sync with the stitch? In a patchwork, how many times the colour of thread is changed?
How pointed are the corners?
How aligned are the stripes?
What would be the most secure way to bind two textiles together?
How well do the textiles of different density and weight bind together? Are there bulging stitches? Or are they all well settled? How well are they interacting with gravity?
Yuva is one of a kind textile designed to highlight a unique coming together of various techniques and creativity of handcraft. This design will not be recreated. Yuva comes with a blouse fabric designed to encourage mora fireflies to bring their own authentic spirit to the fabrication of blouse fit, usage of borders and edgings.
Blouse worn by me is not included.
