Fair Trade Platinum Jubilee Decoration

This delightful crown decoration is handmade in India 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 now a rare and respected craft, the skills of which, with your support, continue to be handed down from generation to generation. Zari-work is now officially recognized as one of the ‘Ancient Handicrafts’ by the Government of India.
