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 only want five things,
One is endless love. Two
is to see the autumn. I
cannot exist without
leaves flying and falling
to earth the third is the
solemn winter, the rain
I loved, the caress of the fire
in the rough cold. My
fourth is the summer,
plump as a watermelon.
And fifthly, your eyes."
