Hand Embroidered Poetry

Approx. 1m x 2.2m


Karien Belle designs thoughtful poetry quotes on stunning fabrics, hand embroidered by women in India (more specifically widows who are inevitably ostracised by their families and communities being named a “bad omen”) and AIDS sufferers - giving them a sustainable income even when they are sometimes too ill to work.
Karien Belle is an incredible woman, and brand, who cares and works closely with this local Indian community to create unique blankets, pillows, scarves, tops, dresses and other garments of impeccable quality that make a lasting impact on real lives.
"I wanna walk and not
run I wanna skip and
not fall I wanna look
at the horizon and not
see a building standing
tall I wanna be the only
one for miles and miles
except for maybe you
and your simple smile."
