MariGold Style is a true reflection of Indian craftsmanship. India has a rich cultural history that has been
influenced by visitors (both ag gressive and friendly) that it has received from time to time. The
craftsmanship, that has its roots dating back to 5000 years, has been influenced by Muslims, Syrian
Christians, British, Portuguese, Jews, French and the hippies of 1960s over time. The cultural impact left
by these guests can be clearly seen in the modern day craftsmanship. This craftsmanship was on a rapid
decline after Indian Independence in 1947 due to lack of patronage from feudal lords and local kings. It
somehow survived and was revived by the growing Indian middle class in the 1980s.
The cushion covers with beautiful 'chikan embroideries' and 'phulkaris' add a touch of elegance and
sophistry where accessorized. Block printed cushion draperies make for resplendent decorations of the
cushions and the sofas. The 'kantha embroideries' marked by a series of flat run stitches are widely
practiced in cushion covers. The covers also come in beautiful 'appliqué embroideries'. Multiple pieces
of colored fabrics are stitched over one another forming decorative patterns. They are then embellished
with various metal pieces, beads, mirrors, sequins, cowries, tassels and various other decorative items.
