UN TALENT HORS DU COMMUNThis extraordinary piece is the work of Anissa, the patient, talented, focused, precise embroiderer working on part of our abanjà line.
What you see is the front neckline detail of a kaftan she is making for herself. NO, IT IS NOT KNITTING; it is very fine embroidery work -this is more or less the actual size-.
She will continue the tiny stitch work all the way down the front of the ankle length kaftan, bridging the 2 front panels with a 1/2 inch strip of that same embroidery she has just started just above the bottom slit.
Anissa said it was a traditional decorative element. She also mentioned it would take her 3 months!
Anissa, you have my unlimited admiration.
