Description

These Christmas 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. Zardozi work is a rare and respected craft, the skills of which are handed down from generation to generation.

St. Nicolas work in partnership with a charity in Thailand that helps rural women find work in their community, rather than being forced to leave home to work in a factory.
