The queen embroider

Let me present to you Laxmi Naik-Duclos.
She is from India and a representative of Banjara.
Banjaras come from the Marwar region of Rajasthan in India.
They were wealthy and some very famous nomadic traders who used to travel from India to Africa and even to the doors of Europe.
Their women are famous for their beauty and their amazing colorful embroidered attire.

Laxmi decided to found an atelier dedicated to these women and their skills: Surya’s garden.
Now, over a hundred Banjara craftswomen work with her to produce these incredible patterns and colors.
They make bags, cushion covers.
The designs are inspired by the very ancient ones.
The fruits of this exceptional work allow Naik to finance scholarship projects for her people…
