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.
"do you feel that? she asked
as we watched the stars and
moon illuminate the sea before
us. That longing to not just
exist, but to live and to live
beautifully, i with a smile
filled with so much truth it
could move the clouds, replied:
of course i feel it, the heart in
you is the heart in me."
