Beautifully intricate Lotus flowers-inspired by the carvings found at the Taj Mahal - bloom BIG thanks to a handful of distinctive design techniques. First, we use foam to create the elegant padded elements then meticulously apply them with satin-stitch embroidery outlined with lovely cording. Grand finale: shimmery accent yarns (a.k.a. gilver) are then hand-embroidered using a special, 'tatami' technique. Crafted of cotton taffeta, normally reserved for fashion yet so at home here. Finished with cotton piping. Hidden-zipper closure; Down-feather insert included. Imported.
