CRAFT

Totally modern Mogul

August 16, 2008|David A. Keeps

Reviving the centuries-old, almost-lost style of traditional Mogul embroidery, Lost City Products employs more than 100 India-based artisans to create dozens of intricate, textural patterns. The result is upholstery that puts a 21st century spin on a traditional craft. Classic vine and floral embroidery is rendered in basic black thread on white cotton or in metallic threads on silk; oversized patterns in bright colors pack a graphic punch that has caught the eye of designers including Tim Clarke of Santa Monica. Such handcrafted luxury does not come cheap: Cotton fabrics start at $173 per yard. The chrysanthemum-style Stencil shown here is $440 per yard.
